9780099529590: The Bloody Chamber And Other Stories (Vintage Classics)

From the liars of the fantastical and fabular and from the domains of the unconscious's mysteries. . . lie the brides in the Bloody Chamber - hunts unwillingly the Queen of the Vampires - slips Red Riding Hood into the arms of the Wolf - pimps our Puss-In-Boots for his lustful master. In tales that glitter and haunt - strange nuggets from a writer whose wayaward pen spills forth stylish, erotic, nightmarish jewe; s of prose - the old fairy stories live and breathe again, subtly altered, subtly changed. (1995-03-28)

Review:

Magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality Angela Carter has extended the life and richness of the fable form itself partly through language that is both pellucid and sensual, but chiefly through imagination of such Ariel reach that 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 Extraordinary and beautiful The Bloody Chamber's interweaving of retold fairy tales demonstrates Angela Carter's narrative gift at its most mocking and seductive Observer
