229 pp, 7 1/4" H. "With language that is both lyrical and distinctly her own, Francesca Lia Block turns nine fairy tales inside out. Escaping the poisoned apple, Snow frees herself from possession to find the truth of love in an unexpected place. - A club girl from L.A., awakening from a long sleep to the memories of her past, finally finds release from its curse. - And Beauty learns that Beasts can understand more than men. Within these singular, timeless landscapes, the brutal and the magical collide, and the heroine triumphs because of the strength she finds in a pen, a paintbrush, a lover, a friend, a mother, and finally, in herself." Minor wrinkle at top/bottom of spine. Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling.
