Handsome Heroines

Women As Men In Folklore

By Shahrukh Husain

This fanciful and witty retelling of classic folktales from around the world reveals how women across the ages have evaded discrimination by masquerading as men. Playful yet thought-provoking, these tales pay glorious tribute to women by proving that no tale is as exciting and irristible as that of the heroine in hero's clothing.
