Review: Katherine Langrish, Seven Miles of Steel Thistles

Nicholas Lezard in The Guardian reviews here a collection of essays on the fairy tale, Seven Miles of Steel Thistles, by the folklorist Katherine Langrish. It sounds a fascinating book, covering tales from the English ‘Mr Fox’, Irish tales (her title comes from a story in William Larminie’s nineteenth-century collection, West Irish Folk-tales and Romances) through Perrault and the Grimms to Japanese fox spirits.
