Praise for The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories

“'The Bloody Chamber's interweaving of retold fairy tales demonstrates Angela Carter's narrative gift at its most mocking and seductive' Observer '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 'Magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality' Ian McEwan”
