Hughes' little novelette is the short story of the year.

“Blue always preferred numbers to words. Words have power. Words hold painful truths and delicious lies. Just one word can stir up a hundred memories and a thousand feelings so that you can be hurt by a word or killed by a sentence.”

Laura is a virtuosa of prose. Dancing between beautifully written allegories and masterfully placed expositions, she has written an ostensibly "non sequitured" story with vivid imagery and even pace. Danse Macabre is a fast, one-hour read, and the paperback costs only four pounds, so do yourself a favor and buy it now
