The answer can be found by comparing Griffin's success here to James's success
in The Ugly Duchess, my most recent fairy tale. That novel is spun, obviously,
from Hans Christian Andersen's “The Ugly Duckling.” My version puts together a
duckling and a pirate, with a touch of “Cinderella”—and a dash of Coco Chanel.
Theo, the duchess in question, is a witty, lovable heroine. And of course, James (
and Griffin) sail the seven seas, tattooed and muscled and altogether delectable.

didacticism made his 'love-gift of a fairy-tale' so popular that his books were
second only to the Bible in bourgeois Victorian nurseries. Alice's commercial
value rose as she was reproduced on ... Alice, the Mad Hatter, and the Ugly
Duchess had long entered national folklore by 1928, when Sotheby's auctioned
the original manuscript for the unheard-of sum of £15,400; it was later sold to the
Parke-Bernet Galleries for $50,000. In 1948, to show its appreciation of Britain's
war efforts, the ...

6 Thus, as he observed, there can be beauty in the truth of an artist's portrayal of
the demonic as demonic or of despair as real despair, just as that which is ugly
but loved is beautiful because of the love shown toward it—as, he suggests, in
Albrecht ... In this sense, he adds, “fairy tales can be true, if they show human
action and behavior in keeping with human character—within the framework of
fairy tale reality. ... 8Quentin Metsys, The Ugly Duchess, The National Gallery,

Wonderland is nearer to the fairy tale (indeed in the fourth chapter Alice says she
finds herself "in the middle of one"); and it is more spontaneous: the first three
chapters, which narrate the fall down the rabbit-hole, the first changes of size,
and the pool of Alice's tears, in which all sorts of little birds and animals swim
around with Alice, is all one flight of delightful fantasy; another such sequence
embraces the ugly Duchess, her cook, her baby, and her cat. Only eventually,
after the Mad ...

What would the duchess accuse her of now? Sophie searched her mind for
things she had done that the duchess may have uncovered. ... I am not ugly. The
duchess was snarling now, her voice growing louder. “You will learn not to treat
my rules with contempt. You will be disciplined.” Sophie didn't have to open her
eyes to see the malicious glint in the duchess's eyes or to see her lips pressed
into that tiny, pinched, cold smile, the smile she always wore when doling out
punishment.
