Promotion info

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.

Reviews

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!

'The boldest of English women writers' Lorna Sage 'Her writing is pyrotechnic -- fuelled with ideas, packed with images and spangling the night with her starry language' Observer
