From Mallory Ortberg comes a collection of darkly mischievous stories based on classic fairy tales. Adapted from their beloved «Children's Stories Made Horrific» series, THE MERRY SPINSTER, takes up the trademark wit that endeared Ortberg to readers of both The Toast and their best-selling debut TEXTS FROM JANE EYRE. The feature became among the most popular on the site, with each entry bringing in tens of thousands of views, as the stories proved a perfect vehicle for Ortberg’s eye for deconstruction and destabilization.

Sinister and inviting, familiar and alien all at the same time, THE MERRY SPINSTER updates traditional children's stories and fairy tales with elements of psychological horror, emotional clarity, and a keen sense of feminist mischief. Unfalteringly faithful to its beloved source material, THE MERRY SPINSTER also illuminates the unsuspected, and frequently, alarming emotional complexities at play in the stories we tell ourselves, and each other, as we tuck
ourselves in for the night.

Mallory Ortberg is Slate's «Dear Prudence». Ortberg has written for Gawker, New York Magazine, The Hairpin, and The Atlantic and is the co-creator of The Toast, a general-interest website geared toward women. Ortberg lives in the Bay Area with their laptop and their cat.
