Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In this imaginative novel rooted in the rich soil of early-nineteenth-century German Romanticism, bestselling author Gregory Maguire twins an origin legend of the famous Nutcracker with the life of Drosselmeier, the toymaker who carves him. Maguire discovers in the flowering of German Romanticism a migrating strain of a Hellenic mystery-cult, and ponders a profound question: how a person who is abused by life, short-changed and challenged, can access secrets that benefit the disadvantaged and powerless.
Subject: Fairy tales > Adaptations.
Genre: Fantasy fiction.
