Matchless by Gregory Maguire "I think I'll tryyyyyy Defyiiiiiiiiing Gravity..." Okay. Ignore me. I love me some Gregory Maguire. He's built his writing career doing interesting, dark (even sometimes darker than the original. Those Grimm brothers be fucked up... amirite?) reimaginings of classic children's stories. One of his books even inspired a long-running, award-winning Broadway musical. I picked up Maguire's reimagining of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match G
I think in preparation for episode two, which is rife with such heavy-hitters as War & Peace and Anna Karenina, the fates (or Amy Sherman-Palladino) chose to gave me a break with the next book on the list.
Therefore, for our final book in episode one... we begin The Little Match Girl by Hans Christian Andersen. #thelittlematchgirl #hanschristianandersen
