Product description

Review

"It is wise, bawdy, vulgar, eloquent and very, very funny... And the writing is often breathtakingly lyrical... A masterpiece. Please share." (Guardian)

"Wise Children is Angela Carter's best book. It deserves many prizes and, better than that, the affection of generations of readers" (Times Literary Supplement)

"Inventive and brilliant" (The Times)

"A funny, funny book, Wise Children is even better than Nights at the Circus. It deserves all the bouquets, diamonds and stage-door Johnnies it can get" (Independent on Sunday)

"Wonderful writing...there is not much fiction around that is as good as this" (Daily Telegraph)
