Despite the availability of several eloquent gender studies of fairy tales, a popular reference on men and fairy tales has so far been nonexistent. Brothers and Beasts offers a new perspective by allowing twenty-three male writers the chance to explore their artistic and emotional relationship to their favorite fairy-tale stories. In their personal essays, the contributors who include genre, literary, mainstream, and visual media writers offer new insight into men s reception of fairy tales. Brothers and Beasts, the follow-up to Kate Bernheimer's influential Mirror, Mirror on the Wall: Women Writers Explore Their Favorite Fairy Tales, offers new avenues for research in fairy-tale studies.Contributors: Steve Almond, Brian Baldi, Christopher Barzak, Joshua Beckman, Greg Bills, Jirí Cêch, Alexander Chee, Robert Coover, Neil Gaiman, Johannes Göransson, Ilya Kaminsky, Eric Kraft, Norman Lock, Gregory Maguire, Michael Martone, Michael Mejia, Timothy Schaffert, David J.

I liked the other volume better. I can't figure out if it is because I'm a woman or because it was simply better. However, there a few essays that are worth it, like the one about Jack and the Beanstalk. If you like Neil Gaiman and/or Jeff Vandermeer, you should know each has an essay in this.
