Discussion Question #2
Much of the mythology of Vida Winter is taken up with the lost thirteenth tale, the story that was supposed to appear as the final installment in her first book, Thirteen Tales of Change and Desperation. Ironically, famous as she is, Vida Winter is at least as famous for the one story no one has read, as she is for her many novels. What is the significance of Vida Winter’s Thirteenth Tale in Diane Setterfield’s The Thirteenth Tale?
What do you think?
