About the Book

From Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Anne Sexton, this collection of poem-stories is a strange, wondrous retelling of Grimms' fairy tales.

Including "Snow White," "Rumpelstilskin," "Rapunzel," "The Twelve Dancing Princesses," "The Frog Prince," and "Red Riding Hood," these are as wholly personal as Sexton's most intimate poetry. Her raw honesty and wit in the face of psychological pain have touched thousands of readers.

Critical Praise

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

The New York Times

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

"God love her." --Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. —
