Praise for From the Forest
"In this lovely, inventive book, Maitland pursues the psychic juncture between forests and fairy tales
the author's research is diligent, her analytical skills sharp, and her prose lean and compelling
The argument she makes for a connection between the woods and the fairy tale is a convincing one and so finely constructed that this odd marriage between fiction and essay proves successful and thought-provoking."Publishers Weekly
