About the Author:

Angela Carter (1940–1992) wrote nine novels and numerous short stories, as well as nonfiction, radio plays, and the screenplay for Neil Jordan's 1984 movie The Company of Wolves, based on her story of the same name. She won numerous literary awards, traveled and taught widely in the United States, and lived in London.

Review:

"A glorious piece of work... The narrative has a splendid ripe momentum, and each descriptive touch contributes a pang of vividness." -- "TLS
"Intensely amusing and also provocatively serious. This is a big, superlatively imagined novel." -- "Observer
