The Bloody Chamber: And Other Stories (Penguin Ink)

by

The Bloody Chamber: And Other Stories (Penguin Ink) Cover

 

Staff Pick

Though rated by the Sunday Times (London) as the 10th greatest British writer since 1945, Angela Carter (1940-1992) is not nearly as well-known on this side of the pond. The Bloody Chamber is an excellent introduction to her work. A collection of short stories based on various fairy and folk tales, this book is a heady, demanding, and lively read that can sometimes shock. Every sentence can be compared to some perfectly ripe — if at times dark — fruit... like, say, an apple. Pick this one up as a first course in the feast that is Carter's work.
