Bree went straight to The Ugly Duchess. The room was empty – nobody cared
about The Ugly Duchess. Bree sat before it, taking in every brushstroke and
remembered the day she'd first seen it. The day the obsession with being
interesting began, if she really thought about it. She was eleven. Year Six school
trip. That last year of primary school, when the bullying from Jassmine and co.
was really bad. Jassmine was popular, even back then. And Bree was a loser,
even back then.

The novels of British authors Barbara Pym and Anita Brookner, for instance, are
built around plain, old maid-type characters. Fay Weldon's Life and Loves of a
She-Devil is a classic portrayal of the ugly woman's rise to power. Canadian
Margaret Atwood's Lady Oracle is one of the most psychologically real ugly
woman novels I've read. An example from the 1920s is German author Lion
Feuchtwanger's The Ugly Duchess, based on a real-life duchess.

FACE OF THE DUCHESS The National Gallery, London contains the extremely
grotesque An Old Woman (c. 1513), by the Flemish artist Quentin Matsys (1466–
1530), that in the twentieth century has become widely known as “The Ugly
Duchess” because it is believed to be John Tenniel's model for his illustration of
that Wonderland character. Although it has been frequently argued that the
portrait is of Margaret Countess of Tyrol (1318–1369)—a.k.a. Margarete
Maultasch, “the ...

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.

Not until Chapter 9, when Alice and the Duchess meet again, are we told that
Alice tried to keep her distance from the Duchess because she “was very ugly,”
and because the Duchess kept prodding her shoulder with her “sharp little chin.”
The sharp chin is mentioned two more times in this episode. The whereabouts of
the Duke, if living, is left in mystery. The chin of Tenniel's Duchess is not very little
or sharp, but she is certainly ugly. It seems likely that he copied a painting
