The latest collection by a master of the short story breathes new life into old legends and brings the magic of myth back into modern women's lives. What happens to today's mature woman when her children have fled the nest? This collection presents fifteen new 'fairy tales', which include an encounter with a mermaid, an erotic adventure with a mysterious stranger, the story of a woman who learns to fly, and of another who transforms herself into a real fairy godmother.
