{The Gingerbread Girl}


I recommend picking up the new Esquire Magazine for the new Stephen King novella...as an added bonus Angelina Jolie is practically naked on the cover! "The Gingerbread Girl" is a 21,000-word novella covering 23 pages of the issue. Esquire Editor-in-Chief David Granger said "Over the last year, we've been trying to breathe life back into magazine fiction,the best way to do that is to publish nothing other than event fiction-stories that have something in addition to their literary merit to call attention to themselves."

The Gingerbread Girl tells the story of Emily, who flees to the secluded Vermillion Key off of Florida's coast after the death of her infant child. Her new neighbor also enjoys the privacy of the key, but the women he brings with him never return home. Emily's curiosity leads her right into the hands of the madman, but it's her legs that are her only hope for survival.

This isn't the first time Esquire has published original fiction, amongst the most notable are Truman Capote's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" and Norman Mailer's "An American Dream".
