Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0984861203, Paperback)

Cultures throughout the world have folktales that carry warnings hidden within. They illustrate what could happen if we surrender to our brutish nature. The first accounts can be found in the oral traditions of a people, passed from generation to generation, before pen touched paper. One of the most notable collections to be later recorded is Kinder- und Hausmärchen, translating to 'Children's and Household Tales', published by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in 1812. The impact this project has had on all parts of our lives, and throughout the world, is nearly incomprehensible. It's a Grimm Life is a tribute to these resounding folktales from the past, placing them in a modern setting. Each story is germinated from a Grimm seed, embracing the darker side of humanity and the world that we know to exist in the shadows, just out of sight.
