The fairy tale lives again in this book of forty new stories by some of the biggest names in contemporary fiction. Neil Gaiman, a€œOrangea€ Aimee Bender, a€œThe Color Mastera€ Joyce Carol Oates, a€œBlue-bearded Lovera€ Michael Cunningham, a€œThe Wild Swansa€ These and more than thirty other stories by Francine Prose, Kelly Link, Jim Shepard, Lydia Millet, and many other extraordinary writers make up this thrilling celebration of fairy talesa€”the ultimate literary costume party. Spinning houses and talking birds. Whispered secrets and borrowed hope. Here are new stories sewn from old skins, gathered by visionary editor Kate Bernheimer and inspired by everything from Hans Christian Andersena€™s a€œThe Snow Queena€ and a€œThe Little Match Girla€ to Charles Perraulta€™s a€œBluebearda€ and a€œCinderellaa€ to the Brothers Grimma€™s a€œHansel and Gretela€ and a€œRumpelstiltskina€ to fairy tales by Goethe and Calvino and from China, Japan, Vietnam, Russia, Norway, and Mexico. Fairy tales are our oldest literary tradition, and yet they chart the imaginative frontiers of the twenty-first century as powerfully as they evoke our earliest encounters with literature. This exhilarating collection restores their place in the literary canon.Oh, now ita#39;s rush hour, golden hour, and all the Cadillacs chauffeuring our mothers to the suburban Seven Cities Mall are ... Hea#39;s got a million MySpace friendsa€”mostly gay men and twelve-year-old girlsa€”and a great big contract with Televisa.
