Ep. 80: The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine

Of Slippers and Spindles - Fairy Tale Retellings and Adaptations in Books, Film, and Theatre

“Dancing was a dangerous game, but it meant that at night, at least, they knew what to do with themselves.” We continue our month of exploring The 12 Dancing Princesses with The Girls at the Kingfisher Club by Genevieve Valentine. This YA retelling removes all magic from the story and recontextualizes it by dropping the twelve young women into the Roaring '20s! Jo Hamilton and her eleven sisters live their lives trapped in the house of their father, who almost never acknowledges them, but they find freedom by sneaking out at night and dancing in the speakeasies of Manhattan. But everything changes when their father begins to suspect their activities and decides to start marrying his daughters off one by one. We discuss the creative new setting, Jo Hamilton vs. Jo March, the emphasis on the relationships between the sisters, the king/father as a villain, and more!  Join our community!

Episode 210: Genevieve Valentine and all the things

The Coode Street Podcast

This week Gary and Jonathan are joined by the wonderful Genevieve Valentine who talks intelligently, coherently and very interestingly about television, film, her latest novel The Girls at the Kingfisher Club, writing for comics and her extended run with Catwoman, and a lot, lot more. Genevieve's brilliance is a little overshadowed by bumbling hosts, who were exceptionally bumbling this weekend, and by perfidious technology (for which our apologies to both you and to Genevieve). Nonetheless, we think there's a lot worth listening to and hope you will persevere. Our sincere thanks to Genevieve for making the time to record the podcast, and to all of you for listening. As always, we hope you enjoy the podcast.
