Fiction. Asian & Asian American Studies. Women’s Studies. In this hybrid novella of trauma and survival, Anna Maria Hong re-imagines and extends the tale of Hansel and Gretel, breaking its received patterns of abandonment and abuse to set G. to wander a world racialized and gendered by power dynamics at every turn. Survivor, artist, hero, G.’s decisive action at the Witch’s oven becomes the kernel of a new identity, independent and resilient, capable of transforming cruel stories into a cunning, masterful feminist bildungsroman.,”In H & G, Anna Maria Hong brilliantly re-visions the ‘Hansel and Gretel’ fairytale for the post-post-modern 21st century. Or explodes it, producing a text brimming with biting wit, feminist insight, psychological incisiveness, and a hybrid narrative daring that turns genre on its head. G., a ‘Korean American fra�lein’ who is ‘sick of the high road’ is willing to tear the whole fantasy edifice of our illusions down as she journeys toward deeper truths, and thankfully, she and H. take us along for their sometimes-frightening, always enlightening rides.” –John Keene

Dragon Slippers Box Set pdf

This review is also available on my blog, Read Till Dawn.,This is my third time attempting to review this book. I’ve been coming back to it periodically for almost a year now, never able to get my feelings about it down on paper. The first time I wound up just summarizing the entire story (pretty poorly, at that). The second time I got started talking about how much I love it and describing Creel, the main character. Somehow I lost my oomph halfway through my seventh line, and never really got it back. But now I’m trying one more time. Three’s a lucky number, right?,Okay, I think I’ll start with the characters. Creel first, because she’s the main character and because, well, she’s awesome. Creel is a fun character for many reasons, from her love for sewing (the clothes descriptions in this book are fantastic!) to her love for – well, someone. Of course, in this book the romance doesn’t dominate the scene. No, it’s just added to the story. What I love about Creel and the prince’s relationship, is that it starts out as a comfortable friendship. It takes the whole first book to become anything more than that, which is really refreshing in today’s fantasy novels. But anyway, Creel is fun. She’s stubborn and single-minded and – well, and funny. Really funny!,Next, the girls who work at the shop. Not much to say about them without spoilers, but I love how Creel made her opinions about the other shopgirls the first time she met them, but then it turned out her first impressions were completely wrong.,Luka. He’s sweet. He’s funny. He’s not a hunk of meat in shoes. He’s an actual person, with an actual life, who becomes friends with Creel. They have things in common, they share a sense of humor, and they like each other as friends before any idea of romance ever comes into either one’s head (okay, that might be an overstatement – but still!). I love him as a character, and my love for him has nothing to do with his physical description. He’s just a nice person.,As for the dragons, the characterization here is really good. Each dragon has a unique personality without being a caricature, and the idea that every dragon hordes a different good is really cool. The first dragon Creel meets hordes shoes, another words stained-glass windows, and another collects dogs. The type of objects that the dragons collect provide a great reflection of their individual personalities.,The storyline is tight, compelling, and flawlessly executed. I honestly have nothing to critique about this book: I all-around love it. I cherish my signed/personalized copy like the treasure it is, and reread it every nine months to a year. I love the characters, the settings, and the plot. And this is why I’ve had such a hard time reviewing it: I have to fight to come up with anything besides “I LOVE THIS BOOK! GO READ IT RIGHT NOW! AND THEN READ THE SEQUELS!” Becase really, that’s all I have to say about this book at the end of the day. So go. Read the book. Please.
