Pearl is in her final year at Eston University. Her days are made up of reading poetry, writing essays on poetry, thinking up essay topics on poetry, and trying not to bite people for invading her personal space. When she finds a book that could make or break her career, Pearl throws all her cautious planning in the wind. But the book has secrets of its own and Pearl will make a very tasty snack.
This deluxe edition of the novelette also contains the original draft of ‘The Passage of Pearl’, an essay on the revision process behind the story and several other extras.
