WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ALI SMITH

Product Description:

Wise Children

Review:

"It is wise, bawdy, vulgar, eloquent and very, very funny... And the writing is often breathtakingly lyrical... A masterpiece. Please share." ( Guardian)

" Wise Children is Angela Carter's best book. It deserves many prizes and, better than that, the affection of generations of readers" ( Times Literary Supplement)

"Inventive and brilliant" ( The Times)

"A funny, funny book, Wise Children is even better than Nights at the Circus. It deserves all the bouquets, diamonds and stage-door Johnnies it can get " ( Independent on Sunday)

"Wonderful writing...there is not much fiction around that is as good as this" ( Daily Telegraph)
