Author(s): Angela Carter
The boldest of English women writers' LORNA SAGE
In this, her second novel, (awarded the 1967 John Llewellyn Rhys Prize) Angela Carter's brilliant imagination and starting intensity of style explore and extend the nature and boundaries of love.
Essential Angela Carter: magic realism, sex, feminism, and just a lot sinister. I loved this book, as much as in parts it had me reading through my fingers!

Angela Carter was born in 1940. One of Britain's most original and disturbing writers, she died in 1992.
