A Whisper in the Dark

Af: Louisa May Alcott



Back when Louisa May Alcott was an aspiring author she took to the art of telling of short stories – much like her character Jo March in ‘Little Women’.

This collection features 12 of her most thrilling and chilling stories, covering aspects of treachery, drug use, control, desire, sexual conflict, suicide, obsession – and even the supernatural.
Named after the gothic masterpiece 'A Whisper in the Dark', which is one of the 12 stories included, the anthology demonstrates the remarkable range and complexity of Alcott's work.

Fans of Stephen King, Gillian Flynn and Agatha Christie will find plenty to love in 'A Whisper in the Dark: Twelve Thrilling Tales'.
Louisa May Alcott (1832-1888) was an American writer of numerous beloved novels, short stories and poems. She was a feminist, and many of her stories are loosely based on her own life experiences. She is primarily known for her young adult fiction but also wrote gothic thrillers, albeit anonymously, and sensational stories under the pen name A.M. Barnard. One of her best-known works is "Little Women", a novel that has been turned into numerous film and television adaptations, such as the 2019 film, starring Saorise Ronan, Florence Pugh and Timothée Chalamet.
