    Holy jesus, I never thought I would have to ADD a book to this site.I can t find this listed ANYWHERE except places where there is almost zero information available for it I m going to have to go get it from the library again just to add the information.A really really great book, I might add I don t know if the tales are actually being retold by the authors listed, but either way, they re twisted and enjoyable if you like that sort of thing If you want your childhood memories untarnished especi [...]

    A phenomenal book of literary parodies written in the styles of the greats of the 20th century All of them are good, twisted, and very fresh takes on childhood classics They range from Cinderella re imagined as a Joycean ramble, to a Tennessee Williams like play that deconstructs the depraved family lives of the Three Bears and Goldilocks, and a spot on telling of The Three Little Pigs set in Evelyn Waugh s England A hilarious read for the literate
