In the year of Pussy Riot, Vagina and Femen and in tune with the current spirit of sedition, Red Tales reads out like a subversive prayer intoned by a master stylist with similar grrrl power concerns. A blend of narrative and the fragment, praised for its sexiness, risk-taking, beauty, humour, innovation and poignancy, deeply voyeuristic Red Tales is full of wonderful heresies set in a recognisable London demi-monde.
Reading its visually mesmerising pages, you will come across an unforgettable ironic grey hair, the beautiful carnal process of falling in love as seen by a homeless couple, a kitsch porcelain siren whosewhispered secret is a gloss on Kafka.s .The Silence of the Sirens., a hilarious and complicit parody on conceptual art, the riddle of an obsession, an homage to the poetry of objects that fit in the handbag of a kleptomaniac .
Written mostly in the mid to late 1990s, before being struck by a long illness which left Medina profoundly deaf and subsequently fitted out with a cochlear implant which allows her to introduce herself as a .bionic woman., Red Tales has now been rescued to immerse you in seven perfectly wrought stories in a refreshing translation.
