Gargouille is a printed, bi-annual literary journal of short stories, poetry, scripts, aesthetic essays, lost and found words. It was founded in 2014 by Sarah Wreford and Adriane Howell.
These are the stories whispered behind closed doors.
“I am neither a reader nor a writer of didactic fiction … Lolita has no moral tow. For me a work of fiction exists only insofar as it affords me what I shall bluntly call aesthetic bliss, that is a sense of being somehow, somewhere, connected with other states of being where art (curiosity, tenderness, kindness, ecstasy) is the norm.”
Vladimir Nabokov, ‘On a Book Entitled Lolita’, 1956
