Angela Carter’s Book of Fairy Tales

Genre: Traditional Tales/Fairy Tales

Publisher: Virago Press

Carter’s fairy-tale compilation spans the globe in a celebration of the world’s eclectic cultural and social heritage, kept alive for centuries through the power of the spoken word. The stories are inventively yet intuitively grouped and their allegorical spirit preserved through simple language and stark imagery. It’s humorous, bawdy and bloody, and definitely not for the faint-hearted! Sympathetically illustrated too.
