The Dog and the Sheep: Fiction --- Cynthia Flood | Numéro Cinq
Today NC offers a brand new Cynthia Flood story: starts with a small walking tour of the Pyrenean foothills, decayed French villages, haunted by the Cathars and their bloody suppression, haunted by Klaus Barbie and the Nazis, haunted by history, all this haunting concretized in the form of a stray dog with blood on its muzzle that follows the group, like a scapegoat or a threat. "The Dog and the Sheep" is a marvelous story of middleclass (tourist) naiveté and the dark mysteries that lurk just at the margins of consciousness.
