Fairy-Tale Files, published once weekly, feature three variations of a fairy tale chosen by one of Fairy Tale Review’s Assistant Editors.
The Wicked Witch of the East meets her demise in Verona, Italy. No sign that this was collateral from a Montague-Capulet clash.
Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt chase tornadoes in the name of fake science—they seek to plant a weather-measuring device named Dorothy inside a twister—in this 1996 box office hit.
#15 Emerald Light in the Air
In Donald Antrim’s The Emerald Light in the Air, an emotionally despondent narrator crashes his car in a creek and, lost in the woods, seeks help at a mysterious cabin.
This edition of Fairy-Tale Files is brought to you by Fairy Tale Review Assistant Editor Thomas Mira y Lopez.
