Twisted Clay

Synopsis

Banned for over 30 years — Frank Walford’s classic work of horror is available again.

“Twisted Clay is a gruesome study of progressive insanity, but the study is obviously subordinate to a desire to excite and horrify.” —H.M. Green

She loved … and killed … both men and women. She was utterly beautiful and utterly mad. This is a tale of passionate horror … a breath-taking venture into abnormal psychology … a story which cannot be forgotten.

“A competently told horror story.” —Bruce Catton, Nea Service

“A prose nightmare, tinged with Poe and Baudelaire substance.” — N.Y. Mirror

“This work will probably be regarded as one of the most notable books of the year. It merits numerous superlatives, such as most peculiar, most gruesome, most forceful.” — Dayton, O., Daily News

“Sensational study of a doomed, abnormal girl in her fight to maintain a warped personality against a world in her torturing journey along the misty and terrifying by-ways of progressive insanity.” — Baltimore, Md., News

“Remarkably persuasive and effective novel.” — Cleveland, O., Press

“The logical successor to the best products of the Tiffany Thayor school.” — Durham, N.C., Herald-Sun
