Acclaimed writer Emma Donoghue spins new tales out of old in a magical web of thirteen interconnected stories about power and transformation and choosing one's own path in the world. In these fairy tales, women young and old tell their own stories of love and hate, honor and revenge, passion and deception. Using the intricate patterns and oral rhythms of traditional fairy tales, Emma Donoghue wraps age-old characters in a dazzling new skin. 2000 List of Popular Paperbacks for YA, At age 28 Emma Donoghue is already a marvel. The author of two critically acclaimed novels, a fascinating work of lesbian history, and a series of successful stage plays, Donoghue can apparently do anything. With Kissing the Witch, a collection of revisionist fairy tales, she has proven once again that she is a great writer. In these 13 interconnected tales she finds new meanings in old stories: Cinderella runs off with her fairy godmother, Snow White's awakening is more erotic than romantic, and Rapunzel discovers that her freedom, although not her salvation, is in her hair. Donoghue writes about women, some lesbians and some not, and makes them the center of her fantastical world. The bold, daring boys of the Grimm tales are not here, but in their place are vibrant, knowing, and brave women and girls who are finding out what the world holds for them. , 10307, Short Stories, 10300, Short Stories & Anthologies, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 5391238011, Mythology & Folk Tales, 297517, Fairy Tales, 12615, Folklore, 12599, Mythology, 17, Literature & Fiction, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10368522011, Girls & Women, 17443, Literature & Fiction, 28, Teen & Young Adult, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 10368626011, Anthologies, 10368624011, Fairy Tales & Folklore, 17468, Fantasy, 17466, Science Fiction & Fantasy, 28, Teen & Young Adult, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books
