The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories
Angela Carter
From familiar fairy tales and legends - Red Riding Hood, Bluebeard, Puss-in-Boots, Beauty and the Beast, vampires, werewolves - Angela Carter has created an absorbing collection of dark, sensual, fantastic stories.

"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's interweaving of retold fairy tales demonstrates Angela Carter's narrative gift at its most mocking and seductive." (Observer )

"Extraordinary and beautiful." (Peter Redgrove )
