Take the sumptuousness of Molly Peacock's own #1 bestselling "The Paper Garden," the extraordinary creative variety of "The Bedside Book of Birds," and the cat-nip-for-language-geeks appeal of "Eats, Shoots and Leaves," and wrap it around tales rich with wisdom and humanity, and you get "Alphabetique" the most gorgeous gift book of the season.
Molly Peacock has written a new classic, a book of magical tales inspired by the lives of the letters of the alphabet.
"Alphabetique," " or Tales from the Lives of the Letters "is one-of-a-kind, but nevertheless fits perfectly with Molly Peacock's extraordinary body of work, drawing on the same wellsprings of creativity and artistry as her poetry and her nonfiction, especially "The Paper Garden." These 26 charming, incisive, sensual stories of love, yearning, and self-discovery are complimented by Kara Kosaka's layered, jewel-bright collages.

Molly ventured into short fiction with ALPHABETIQUE: 26 CHARACTERISTIC FICTIONS magically illustrated by Kara Kosaka, published by McClelland & Stewart. Her memoir, PARADISE, PIECE BY PIECE, about her choice not to have children, is now an e-book. Molly is one of the subjects of Renee McCormick’s documentary, A LIFE WITHOUT CONVENTION, https://vimeo.com/178503153.
