Beauty, Snow White, Rose Red - you've met them all in many incarnations. But you haven't met Charm or Snow or Tiny, not as Francesca Lia Block has imagined them. Within her singular, time-less landscapes, the brutal and the magical collide. In Block's retelling of these tales, the heroine triumphs because of the strength she finds in a pen, a paintbrush, a lover, a friend, a mother, and, finally, in herself.
