“…the love that consists in this: that two solitudes protect and border and greet each other.”
I think this book should be handed out to high school students along with free condoms and pamphlets on road safety. I think this book should be handed out to grown adults along with free condoms and pamphlets on road safety. —Recommended by Elaine Kahn, City Lights Books

I am alone in the midst of these happy, reasonable voices. All these creatures spend their time explaining, realizing happily that they agree with each other. In Heaven’s name, why is it so important to think the same things all together.  ―Jean-Paul Sartre     Nausea

Reinterpreting myths, fairy tales, and folk tales is way more than a cottage industry—a castle industry?—in publishing these days. From literary fiction (The Tiger’s Wife) to YA (Robin McKinley’s books, Runemarks) to graphic novels (the Fable series, The Sigh) to humor (Gods Behaving Badly), authors are picking up and reimagining bits and pieces from millennia of human story-telling. This is, of course, not entirely new; as long as there have been stories there have been reinterpretations of them. But the purposefulness and the politics do seem to have shifted in interesting ways over the past several decades, as feminist and LGBT/queer authors rethink these stories for a new world.

Reimagining Folk and Fairy Tales (with Kink, Joy, Nudity)

Feminist and Queer interpretations of fairy tales are some of my favourite books, I’d recommend The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter and Kissing the Witch by Emma Donoghue. 

If you have any more recommendations for me please leave them in my ask :)
