Alan has assembled a series of delightful tales that capture this transition perfectly. Hundreds or thousands of years old, drawn from cultural traditions around the world, they are refreshingly contemporary. We are all familiar with the hero-oriented fairy tales of our youth, where the prince conquers the foe and wins the hand of the princess.
Alan presents for us another genre of fairy tales, the "middle tales" that describe what happens after the heroic phase. While the heroic tales reaffirm the cultural norms, for example what men and women "should" be, these "middle tales" are countercultural, telling us what life is really like, irrespective of cultural expectations and roles.
The tales also develop the themes of moving from rational intelligence to true wisdom enriched by life experience, the inevitable role-reversals that emerge in mid-life, and coming to grips with our own mortality.
