Dy's Take

I’ve mentioned that I love fairy tales, right?  Current scholarly consensus is that the oldest versions of a Cinderella-type story are from China, so that is where Napoli set hers.  It was richer than Cinderella (a shallow tale if ever there was one) and beautifully written, as are all Napoli’s fairy tale re-creations. This character is strong, no-nonsense, and there is no magic or fairy godmother… Well, unless you count a ~really~ big carp.
