Snow White in New York

Publisher: Oxford University Press

Review

The Snow White fairy tale receives a 1920s Art Deco treatment in this beautiful retelling by Fiona French. Now a beautiful socialite, Snow White falls foul of her celebrity-loving stepmother who the tabloids call 'the classiest dame in New York'.

Left to fend for herself in the wild city, Snow White finds work singing with the seven jazz-men and, discovered by a handsome music reporter, becomes the Belle of New York City once more.

Danger looms in the form of a poisoned cocktail cherry, but in the end Snow White is rescued from death by the reporter, and they sail off into the sunset aboard a luxury cruise ship.

Reminiscent of the paintings of Tamara de Lempicka, this beautiful book oozes with attitude, style and the elegance of 1920s America.
