What ensues is a tragic and powerful tale of love and hate, tragedy and rebirth. Zilelian's prose is lyrical at times, but for the most part she crafts a purposely flat realism that perfectly complements her subject matter.
Famous dates and big numbers are a paradox: the easiest to pinpoint and the hardest to comprehend.
Note: Certain fairy tales, like "Beauty and the Beast" and "Cinderella," have been told and retold so often in mainstream American society that they're deeply ingrained in our minds. "Cinderella," which remains popular as a Disney cartoon film, has...
