'Displays the superbly witchy Angela Carter at her best... Whatever her subject, Angela Carter writes like a dream -- sometimes a nightmare' - Sunday Telegraph

Extraordinary and diverse people inhabit this rich, ripe and raucous collection of stories. Some are based on real people, like Jeanne Duval, Baudelaire's sexy, reluctant muse, and Edgar Allen Poe, demonstrating in thought and deed how 'No man is safe who drinks before breakfast'. Some are imaginary: the girl suckled by wolves who will not tolerate returning to humanity. Mingling history, invention, literary criticism, high drama and low comedy, Carter's stories are as full of contradictions and surprises as life itself.
