Need a book to give that you’re sure the recipient hasn’t read before?
The Guardian has a suggestion: Hermynia Zur Mühlen’s fairytales, most of which have never been published in English before.
Fifteen of the seventeen stories in The Castle of Truth and Other Revolutionary Tales have only been released in German, but next month, they'll come out in English thanks to Princeton University Press.
Zur Mühlen, an Austrian, was born into privilege but rebelled against that upbringing and became a prominent left-wing author; her stories in Castle and elsewhere promoted equality and social justice.
Enjoy a glimpse of them before then in the Guardian.
