'Enormous fun, and shamelessly didactic' - Lorna Sage, OBSERVER
This bestselling collection of stories extols the female virtues of discontent, sexual disruptiveness and bad manners.See all Product description

That complaint aside, there were some stories that I really enjoyed. The folk tale style of the story of Lena and Una, complete with typical folk justice, was particularly good and the haunting story of the Okes of Okehampton reminded me of Daphne du Maurier. All in all, an interesting collection, but not one I think I'm likely to read again.

Like all anthologies there are some stories that are weaker than others but on the whole it is a wonderful collection and a must for any Angela Carter fan!
