Books by Angela Carter

SEA-CAT AND DRAGON KING by Angela Carter
ANIMALS
Released: Aug. 1, 2002

"This small fable is definitely a change of pace from Carter's psychosexual novels and retold folktales, but it's more about style than substance. (Fiction. 8-10)"
"It is a little-known fact that cats live at the bottom of the sea. Everything at the bottom of the sea is just the same as it is on land—except, of course, that it is quite different." Read full book review >
BURNING YOUR BOATS by Angela Carter
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: March 1, 1996

"A book of wonders, then, even if too cloying for some tastes- -and a welcome occasion for reassessing the work of one of the most unusual writers of recent emergence."

WISE CHILDREN by Angela Carter
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Jan. 1, 1992

"Accessible but thin."
A bawdy tale of parenthood told by a typical Carter (Saints and Sinners, 1986) heroine: witty, brash, and a sucker for farce who gives a story a good feminist spin. Read full book review >
