Eleven tales of amoral and accidental victory, neither pyrrhic nor hollow, but dark – and filtered through elements of the supernatural and the mundane. From jilted lovers to embittered spouses, from all-seeing mothers to blind daughters, Dark Victories is a collection of unexpected triumphs, and an exploration of the almost indefinable borderline between what is desired and what is deserved.
