"But I loved Narcissus because as he lay on my banks and looked down at me, in the mirror of his eyes I saw ever my own beauty mirrored."

As I've said before, I don't cry with books, I don't know why, I just don't, but that doesn't mean I don't get emotional.

Well... With one of the stories of this book, I don't remember which, something with birds on it, I was in the subway with my tears threatening to leave my body, while I kept telling myself: "Damn it woman! You're not gonna cry in the fucking public transportation!"

So yep, that's a lot for me.

The Original Cover 

Published August 26th 1982 by Oxford University Press

It's pretty. Weird and kind of scary. But pretty.

My Country's Covers (Spain)

This one is just plain weird and scary. Fucking freaky hand...

Favorite Cover

British Edition

It looks so fairy taleish and the girl is really cool too, with her quiver or whatever and her feathered head piece thingy. Or wings, maybe? I don't even know. Love it.

Least Favorite Cover

Portuguese Edition

WTF is that? It looks hellish as shit and it doesn't look like a book of stories about princes, birds and reformed giants at all. Nope.
