Description: At the time of her death in 1992, Angela Carter had become one of the most important and widely read British writers. However as the author of a collection of essays entitled Nothing Sacred, she would probably have found her own canonization amusing. In the first book-length study devoted to her novels, Linden Peach demonstrates how Carter's fiction has retained the power to shock us, move us and make us laugh. This lively book provides both dose readings of individual texts and on overview of her work. Arguing that Carter often begins with our conclusions, it discusses the challenges that her novels mount to popular preconceptions and conventions. It offers an in-depth discussion of Carter's much neglected first novel, Shadow Dance, and suggests fresh approaches to other texts, including Carter's indebtedness to Euro-American Gothic and her concern with carnivalesque and theatre as sites of illegitimate power.
