A Book Honoring a Grimm Anniversary

On the 200th anniversary of the publication of the Brothers Grimm’s first fairy tale collection, Kinder-und Hausmärchen, comes a new twist on the genre - fairy tales for adults.

Denver, CO, February 25, 2012 --(PR.com)-- After years of Disneyesque fairy tales for children the novel, Curses! A F***ed Up Fairy Tale releasing on March 1, 2012, offers all the insight and whimsy of the genre with a healthy dose of humor and intrigue. Think Neil Gaiman meets Shrek, in a bar, at last call.

Definitely not for baby’s bedtime reading, this hilarious and irreverent take on classic fairytales combines humor, mystery, and characters only a fairy godmother could love.

When Cinderella is run over by a New Never City bus, her not-so-ugly stepsister, Asia, suspects murder. So she hires RJ, a private eye, to investigate. Little does she know RJ is actually a villain on mental health leave from the Villain’s Union. Cursed with an inability to say no to damsels in distress, RJ travels to the Kingdom of Maldetto, meets the rest of Cinderella’s family - including her fiancé, the flamboyant Prince Charming, Cinderella’s crazy stepmother, and a seriously twisted version of Hansel and Gretel - and dodges bullets, explosions, fires, and his own ex-wife to slip his own version of glass handcuffs on the wrists that fit. All while falling for Asia, who has a curse of her own to deal with...
