Description

MOST LOVED. MOST RED. Ten must-read modern classics.

‘Nursery fears made flesh and sinew; earliest and most archaic of fears, fear of devourment.’

We grow up on fairy tales but it is only later we realise what we have been fed. Angela Carter saw the power of these dark stories – stories in which objects betray, children threaten, men turn into animals and women are unsafe. Erotic, subversive, ancient, modern: the tales in this book pulse with a vivid, radical imagination.

Turn the key, enter the chamber. Carter untwists our old tales and offers them up with sensuality, depravity, humour – and a mirror held up to ourselves.
