" An] engrossing story...endearing and memorable."
--Boston Herald

"A tale so movingly told that you will say at the end of the first reading, 'It's been a long time since I've read a book this good.'"

--Nashville Tennessean

Gregory Maguire proves himself to be "one of contemporary fiction's most assured myth-makers" (Kirkus Reviews) with Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister, his ingenious and provocative retelling of the timeless Cinderella fairy tale.
