Product description

Review

"Fairy tales reimagined for feminist times" (Grazia)

"She was, among other things, a quirky, original, and baroque stylist, a trait especially marked in The Bloody Chamber - her vocabulary a mix of finely tuned phrase, luscious adjective, witty aphorism, and hearty, up-theirs vulgarity" (Margaret Atwood Observer)

"Magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality" (Ian McEwan)

"She can glide from ancient to modern, from darkness to luminosity, from depravity to comedy without any hint of strain and without losing the elusive power of the original tales" (The Times)

"The Bloody Chamber is such an important book to me. Angela Carter, for me, is still the one who said: ‘You see these fairy stories, these things that are sitting at the back of the nursery shelves? Actually, each one of them is a loaded gun. Each of them is a bomb. Watch: if you turn it right it will blow up.’ And we all went: ‘Oh my gosh, she’s right―you can blow things up with these!’" (Neil Gaiman Daily Telegraph)

Book Description

A special edition of the best stories by Angela Carter, the master of fabulous, seductive, luminous storytelling

This Collection is an intriguing twist on the fantasy genre. It contains one of my favourite short stories: 'The lady of the house of love' which beautifully subverts the traditional expectations of a vampire story. I'd recommend it to anyone interested in horror or fantasy and looking for something with a fresh point of view.
