Cinderella's princely suitor has a foot fetish;
Rumpelstiltskin deliberately lets his name be known to the hapless miller's daughter, who-unknown to her-is really Rumpelstiltskin's daughter;
Snow White's stepmother, who comes from an abusive home, worked at a slaughterhouse before winning a beauty contest.

Priscilla Galloway broodingly revisits eight classic fairy tales, prowling about their dark corners to lay in additional helpings of pain and loss.
