Michael  Köhlmeier  (Editor) - Fairy-Tale Decameron


Fairy tales speak to everyone

Myths and legends make up mankind’s oldest reservoir of knowledge, and act as gigantic mirrors of people’s dreams, fears and tragedies. Michael Köhlmeier, a celebrated novelist and gifted rhapsodist, has collected 100 stories, which he has organised according to their primal scenes and analysed with great sensitivity.

There are ten stories for each of ten life motives – a unique “decameron”, a treasure for every lover of fairy tales and the quintessence of the legendary Diederichs collection "Märchen der Weltliteratur" (Fairy Tales of World Literature).
