**************** I think I mentioned that in the last six months or so I've turned more towards nonfiction than fiction. A few really bad novels helped. Anyway, one of the nonfiction ones was Maria Tatar's THE HARD FACTS ABOUT THE GRIMMS' TALES. A great book, with no-nonsense straight talk about the tales, and some interesting conclusions. A lot of those Disney movies are based on those tales.

Mr. Stansberry did a tip of the hat to those tales in his THE CONFESSION. The protagonist's wife is writing a book on three of the tales, at least one of them with an incest theme buried in it.
