Review:

"A vivid, astonishing, blood-curdling book." -- Stanley Kunitz

"These poem-stories are a strange retelling of seventeen Grimms fairy
tales, including "Snow White," "Rumpelstiltskin," "Rapunzel," "The
Twelve Dancing Princesses," "The Frog Prince," and "Red Riding Hood."
Astonishingly, they are as wholly personal as Anne Sexton's most
intimate poems. "Her metaphoric strength has never been greater --
really funny, among other things, a dark, dark laughter." -- C. K.
Williams

"A funny, mad, witty, frightening, charming, haunting book."
