Some Kind of Fairy Tale by Graham Joyce (2012)
Joyce weaves elements of folklore and myth into this novel of magical realism; its well-drawn characters build a tale of family, life and contradicting realities.
I find this idea of an updated fairy tale very appealing and as a quote in the novel says:
“A fairy tale...on the other hand, demands of the reader total surrender; so long as he is in its world, there must for him be no other.” – W. H. Auden
