EARLY PRAISE:Paper Tigers is full of hauntings of every sort, a modern ghost story of the very best kind, combining the delicate mania of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the subtlety of Shirley Jackson and the raw dynamism of Joyce Carol Oates. But what Walters delivers here is thoroughly her own creation: a starkly beautiful tale of what it means to survive."-HELEN MARSHALL, World Fantasy Award-winning author ofGifts for the One Who Comes After'Paper Tigers gathers the best from every childhood scary story-creepy antiques, haunted houses, seemingly friendly ghosts-and repackages them with the worst and most isolating of adult fears. Walters' prose is vivid and gripping, luring you in, feeding you images that will leave you comforted by the light of your bedside nightstand; horror nostalgia at its finest.'-REBECCA JONES-HOWE, author ofVile Men'WithPaper Tigers, Damien Angelica Walters has created a hauntingly elegant portrait of loneliness and longing for healing. But where she confronts real terror is in answering the question of what it costs the wounded to be whole again. This book is at once as beautiful and frightening as a scar on smooth skin or a scream with perfect pitch.'-BRACKEN MACLEOD, author ofMountain Home andStranded'Damien Angelica Walters pulls you into the heart of her characters and traps you there until you're not sure if the story is haunting you, or you're haunting it. Wonderfully creepy and heartwarming, fear and sadness alternate and blend throughout in a story that's packed with atmosphere. Keep the lights on and the tissues close.'-SARAH READ, editor ofPantheon Magazine EARLY PRAISE:"Paper Tigers is full of hauntings of every sort, a modern ghost story of the very best kind, combining the delicate mania of Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the subtlety of Shirley Jackson and the raw dynamism of Joyce Carol Oates.
