Mirror, mirror on the wall : women writers explore their favorite fairy tales ( Book )
10 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 648 libraries worldwide

In Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Kate Bernheimer brings together twenty-four of our foremost contemporary women writers to discuss, in poetic narratives, evocative personal histories, and penetrating essays, how the fairy tales we all grew up with - from "Cinderella" and "Little Red Riding Hood" to "Bluebeard" and "The Princess and the Pea" - have affected their emotional lives, their work, and the culture they live in
