Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
Man Man, the freaky, funky Philadelphia band famous for their live shows, adopt the giant’s notorious refrain for the chorus of their song Engrish Bwudd.
Spotted on the streets of Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood during AWP, 2014: a Jack climbing his beanstalk on the wall.
Jack is forced to confront characters from his past in Tony Earley’s short story, an updating Earley says was influenced by the 1930s Appalachian version of the folk tale.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Assistant Editor Tommy Mira y Lopez.
