When a young man squanders his inheritance and scornfully refuses the help of a family friend, he descends into miserable fury. At his lowest point, upon a jagged beach overlooking a sea suddenly violent with storm, he encounters a twisted deity that offers him wealth and revenge . . . for an unconscionable price.
"Transformation" is a disturbing tale of recklessness and pride, an eerie Gothic twist on the scriptural prodigal son narrative by the mother of horror Mary Shelley.
