Tanith Lee is a British fantasy author. She is the author of more than 70 novels and almost 300 short stories. The story is one in a collection of reworked fairy tales ‘Red as Blood’ edited by Ellen Datlow and Terry Windling and it might remind you of a very familiar fairy tale you know! Special permission has also been granted by Tanith Lee herself to distribute the story to Iggy members who want to take part in the live lounge.
We’ll be looking at the story critically and discussing writing style and fairy tale motifs along with as well as reflecting on images in the writing, and what the story tells us about femininity and gender. Such as what the author captures about men and women’s perceived roles in society.
It’s going to be a lot of fun.
