Ah that's interesting because no, that's not how I picture Stella Gibbons BUT it is how I can picture a grown up Flora!!


OOH,Angela have a treat in store! Try "The Bloody Chamber"!

What Juliet said! You have to read The Bloody Chamber as soon as poss and also the Magic Toyshop. Lots of others but those are my favourites. Esp Bloody Chamber.


I would read Carter - sugest Nights at the circus, but others recommendations no doubt excellent too. She's a magic realist which may not be your c of t, but while she's not in the same league as the great South American practitioners, she is worth the effort - Lindsay, now in Beijing!


I only recognised Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield and Angela Carter but I only recognised the latter because I have just acquired a copy of The Bloody Chamber with the same pic on it!
I love her take on Fairy Tales and The Bloody Chamber is a fascinating read.

It would seem my comment didn't adhere itself ... Is the woman in the centre of the bottom row Pamela Frankau?

Margaret Powling

Oops, sorry, I thought I was on the previous blog posting about this ... I see now I was wrong, it's not Pamela Frankau but Stella Gibbons.


I like magic realism, and I must give AC a try.
Hope you're done journeying for a while!
