OLDER FICTION
(2) YA Prince Emory saves a damsel from a dragon and whisks her away to his kingdom to await their wedding day. Initially obliging, amnesiac protagonist Ama soon begins to despair of her captivity and exploitation. Hints along the way suggest Ama's true origin and the nature of her "rescue," but the conclusion is nevertheless both surprising and satisfying. Arnold's original fairy tale is lyrical, brutal, and unapologetically feminist.
