The answer canbe found by comparing Griffin's success here to James's success
in The Ugly Duchess, my most recent fairy tale. That novel is spun, obviously,
from Hans Christian Andersen's “The Ugly Duckling.” My version puts together a
duckling and a pirate, with a touch of “Cinderella”—and a dash of Coco Chanel.
Theo, the duchess in question, is a witty, lovable heroine. And of course, James (
and Griffin) sail the seven seas, tattooed and muscled and altogether delectable.

Albrecht ... In this sense, he adds, “fairy tales can be true, if they show human

Wonderland is nearer to the fairy tale (indeed in the fourth chapter Alice says she
finds herself "in the middle of one"); and it is more spontaneous: the first three

and the pool of Alice's tears, in which all sorts of little birds and animals swim

embraces the ugly Duchess, her cook, her baby, and her cat. Only eventually,
after the Mad ...

without their blemishes: the stooped duchess wants to be depicted standing erect
, and the fat finance minister expects to be shown as a trim and handsome man.
... Fables and Fairy Tales Fairy tales, then, are not responsible for producing in
children fear, or any of the shapes of fear; fairy tales do not give the child the idea
of the evil or the ugly; that is in the child already, because it is in the world already
