Andrea Cumbo, January 11, 2008 (view all comments by Andrea Cumbo)
Carter is one of the great postmodern, if you'll let me use that term, writers. She has a beautiful sense of pacing and represents interiority spectacularly.

These stories are great for any one who loves fairy tales, is interested in the feminist perspective on folklore (or contemporary life), or anybody who just loves a good story.

This collection pulls all of her stories together and is well-worth the cost.

Check out "The Fall River Ax Murders" for a new take on Lizzie Borden's alleged crime. And watch the beauty become the beast in her revision of that tale.
