Cinderella was published by Éditions Actes Sud- Babel and Actes Sud-Heyoka Jeunesse, illustrated by Roxane Lumeret.


Sandra, Joël Pommerat’s Cinderella, is convinced that her mother’s last words were to ask her to think about her mother every five minutes, or else she would actually die. A clock in motion is the maddening chorus that recalls that oath. The mother’s death, quickly removed from the Brothers Grimm’s story, is the heart of this narrative: a stimulating contemplation of the links between sadness and guilt. Joël Pommerat gives a real sense to the fairy tale, without giving up its enchantment.
