At once a dystopian fantasy and a critique of sexual norms, this novella describes a unique boarding institution for girls – part idyllic refuge, part prison – where pupils are trained only in the physical arts of movement, dance and music, before issuing into an adult world for which they have (unwittingly) been prepared. Presented alongside two rare, complementary short fictional pieces: The Burning of Egliswyl and The Sacrificial Lamb.
