“I wanted to write a slightly bent, playful take on the fairy-tales, with a sprinkle of humour, while not denying their power, and their grip on our hearts and minds – especially on the unconscious parts of our minds, where stories tell us things about ourselves, even if we don’t want to hear them. In other words, I wanted to have my ironic cake, but eat it with real feeling.” – Peter Goldsworthy
