  • "Everyone should possess and know Grimm's Fairy Tales - one of the great books of the world"

  • "The Brother's Grimm were responsible for these fairytales that informed my life and made it as interesting, or as confused, or as wondrous as it is...they scared the shit out of me when I was a kid and they also gave me some of the most pleasure in life"
