Mathilda & Max Carrados
Read by actress Sarah Douglas, Mathilda is a romantic novella dealing with the darker themes of incest and suicide.
Narrating from her deathbed, Mathilda tells the story of her unnamed father’s confession of incestuous love for her, followed by his suicide by drowning; her relationship with a gifted young poet called Woodville fails to reverse Matilda’s emotional withdrawal or prevent her lonely death.
