about

First there was, or were, "Fractured Fairy Tales." Then "Politically Correct Fairy Tales." Then all those "Shrek" movies. Now, just when you thought you'd had about enough, here comes "Bedtime Stories for Insomniacs" to take you where "Once upon a time" never managed to take you before!

   With over fifty contemporary takes on myths, legends, fairy tales, and Bible stories, "Bedtime Stories for Insomniacs" focuses primarily on human nature, socially accepted cruelty, the victim culture, pop psychology, puerile "uplift" books (if you're looking for uplift, buy a Wonderbra), the destructive downside to traditionalism, taking refuge in clichés and catchphrases as a means of avoiding reality, and the catastrophic consequences of a dumbed-down society. And the sentences are shorter than that last one.
