Paul Magrs

Flesh of a Fancy Woman

From: Criminal Pursuits: Crime Through Time

Edited by: Samantha Lee Howe

Published by: Telos Publishing

Paul Magrs’ story, ‘Flesh of a Fancy Woman’ is a wonderfully evocative mix of the Dickensian and the Ealing black and white films. The sparkling dialogue of Lily Mahon slowly unveils the dark, and sometimes comedic experiences of Lily’s bizarre marriage to her husband, Patrick.
