Alert: this is not Anderson's usual mystery. This book is literary fiction written at the request of a Hollywood Entertainment Company that optioned it for possible film production. Anderson granted them the film rights and he retained rights over all other media. They have hired a scriptwriter who is busily at work on a screenplay.
What's The Loves of Cinderella about? This novel is a modern twist on an old fairy tale. What would happen if Cinderella, one of the world’s most beloved and iconic characters, lived in the geopolitical situation of the 21st century rather than the 17th? What if she were a beautiful teenage girl going through normal angst instead of an animated creation flashed on the screen? This Cinderella is a teenager from Eastern Europe forced to flee her homeland to escape terrorist rape squads. With the help of a UN Agency, she finds her way to Beverly Hills as an au pair only to encounter abuse and new threats from her evil host family. How Cinderella overcomes numerous obstacles―including attempts on her life―to pursue her destiny of becoming a famous Hollywood actress, and finding true love with Prince Charming about whom she has fantasized, is the crux of the story.
