I loved this too, Cornflower! If you're not sure where to start with Angela Carter, I recommend The Bloody Chamber, her retelling of fairy tales. They are short, vivid, quirky and funny and very Carter!

Chloe

I liked it, but felt a bit short-changed by it too, brief is kind I think. But never read any Angela Carter, wow what a treat in store - you could consider her for a CBG choice for the future perhaps.

Cornflower

Thanks for the recommendation, Litlove.

Dark Puss

I'd recommend (in fact I have, often) almost any book by Carter. As an alternative to the excellent suggestion of "litlove", try The Magic Toyshop and Nights at the Circus.

Dark Puss

Some of us have been suggesting just that Chloe!

It is very short indeed but it impressed me, perhaps because I felt it did 'speak volumes', and yes, I think I must put AC down as a book group possible.

Cornflower

She is on the list! Thankyou.

I've read The Bloody Chamber and very much enjoyed it and I rather covet a lovely hardback copy of her Fairy Tales that I have seen around although it is a bit on the pricy side for me at the moment!
I think I read Nights at the Circus when it first came out but that was so long ago and I can remember so little about it that I'm not sure it counts!
