Staff Reviews

Comfort Me with Apples is a short but thrilling new novella from bestselling author, Catherynne M. Valente. It is so twisted that you will not know where the story is headed until you're right in the thick of it. Trust me, you will want to go into this completely blind. It is utterly jaw-dropping.

Cassidy Washburn

An eerie novella following a perfectly content woman living in a perfect suburbia with a perfect husband. Everything is absolutely perfect; that is until Sophia starts questioning things- like why her husband is away so much, and why the basement is always locked, and why all her neighbors seem so invested in Sophia’s happiness. Comfort Me with Apples is a twisty ride with mind-blowing reveals and a grand slam ending.

“I raced through this novella in one sitting before bed and paid for it in my dreams, but the nightmares were worth it! Comfort Me With Apples reads like Angela Carter retelling the story of Adam and Eve: it’s lush, eerily off-kilter, sensual, and so, so creepy.”
— Lauren Peugh, The Elliott Bay Book Company, Seattle, WA


Sophia was made for him, her perfect husband. She can feel it in her bones. He is perfect; their home together in Arcadia Gardens is perfect; everything is perfect. It's just that he's away so much--so often. He works so hard. She misses him, and he misses her. He says he does, so it must be true. He is the perfect husband, and everything is perfect. But sometimes Sophia wonders about things--strange things, dark things--the look on her husband's face when he comes back from a long business trip, the questions he will not answer, the locked basement she is never allowed to enter. And whenever she asks the neighbors, they can't quite meet her gaze.... But everything is perfect--isn't it?
