Product Description: 

Author: Michael Cunningham. A poisoned apple and a monkey's paw with the power to change fate; a girl whose extraordinarily long hair causes catastrophe; a man with one human arm and one swan's wing; and a house in the forest, constructed of gumdrops and gingerbread, vanilla frosting and boiled sugar. The people and the talismans of lands far away, mythic figures of our childhoods and the source of wonder are transformed into stories of sublime revelation. Here are the moments that our fairy tales forgot or concealed: the years after a spell is broken, the instant of a miracle realized, or the fate of a prince only half cured of a curse.
