Grim: Classic Fairy Tales Updated for an All-About-Me Age by Joseph Burgo


How would Cinderella have actually turned out, given that she grew up in a home where she was hated and abused? What sort of mother wants to murder her own daughter because she is younger and more beautiful? Just how possessive is a woman who locks her own child into a tower to prevent her from having contact with other people? Three novella-length fairy tales answer these questions while exploring the psychology of narcissism, self-injury, envy, and unconscious shame. Noted psychologist Joseph Burgo turns his hand to fiction in this companion work to his non-fiction book THE NARCISSIST YOU KNOW (Touchstone 2015). These three fairy tales blend the realms of psychological fiction and dark fantasy. For those interested in depth psychology, they also shed light on some of the more serious and perplexing psychological disorders: narcissistic personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder, and borderline personality disorder. A highly original book that will appeal to readers of literary fiction, fans of dark fantasy, and students of psychoanalysis alike.
