it was amazing

one of the cleverest & funniest books i've ever read. a post-modern retelling of Snow White. all the characters except snow white have new names: the prince (or maybe anti-prince) is Paul, the wicked queen is Jane, the dwarves all have names. a feast for anyone who loves the english language.

"Now I have been left sucking the mop again," Jane blurted out in the rare-poison room of her mother's magnificent duplex apartment on a tree-lined street in a desirable location. "I have been left sucking the mop in a big way."
