“Did Cinderella’s glass slippers start to pinch after a while? Did her prince become a work-obsessed dragon- slayer? Did Snow White marry in haste (given that she’d only just recovered from a very serious coma), then realise that her true love was really Dopey?”
In a collection remarkable for its vitality, perceptiveness and humour, these up-and- coming writers turn a ruthlessly honest eye on the reality beneath the glossy veneer of modern life. From bridal bliss to married desperation, from the harrowing to the hilarious, the utterly heartrending to the deliciously upbeat, these stories will hold you spellbound.
This is the cream of the newest crop, the very best from hundreds of writers who responded to the call to “Do The ‘Write’ Thing” through RTÉ’s Seoige & O’Shea.
