Midwest Book Review
fairy tales were created for several reasons; community identity,
teaching morality, and of course, as entertainment. Thus it is fitting
for a group of lesbian authors to reconsider fairy tales and ask
in their introduction, "Why were the heroines always pretty,
pure, passive little things who needed rescuing? .... What was so
charming about Prince Charming anyway?"
The sex gets steamy
and sometimes may challenge readers. The novella formats make for
a nice change of pace in reading. Once upon a Dyke is romantic,
funny, thoughtful, and hot. Buy a copy and live happily ever after,
for a while.
