New fairy tales

I absolutely adore fairy tales. There is something about their fantasticalness (nevermind that that is not a word) that I fall for every time. Fairy tales put a spell on me.

My Mother Killed Me, My Father Ate Me is a book of new whimsical fairy tales. Editor Kate Bernheimer compiled an array of tales from contemporary authors - Joyce Carol Oates, Neil Gaiman, and John Updike to name a few - who took influence from classical fairy tales, and put their own modern day spin on them. With stories taken from all around the world, this book will surely fill you with warm feelings of delight.
