Review:

This is an amazing, captivating collection of stories based on fairy tales. They are not stories for children; Angela Carter makes the very adult undertones of many fairy tales explicit, with twists on the familiar versions that make these stories fun and quick (albeit dark and graphic) reads if you're just looking for an interesting plot. However, there is still plenty of subtext, and the brilliant prose is dripping with symbolism. These are stories you could read over and over and find new meanings and insights every time --By jana comstock on 28 November 2016

Nobody ever used language quite the way Angela Carter did--few would ever dare in this dumbed-down day and age of ours. Yet still, more than thirty years after the author's untimely death, her unique way with words continues to captivate, inspire and intoxicate like tongues of Dionysian fire dancing upon the blessed lips of each new generation. These are words to make the heart sing and the imagination soar; beautiful yet exquisitely precise, evocative, fearless, erudite, occupying that rarefied realm where prose and poetry seem to share the self-same space like lovers in disembodied ecstasy. --By Terrance Aldon Shaw on 20 December 2015
