Most widely held works by Angela Carter
The bloody chamber, and other stories by Angela Carter( Book )

115 editions published between 1978 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 1,968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Familiar tales retold with a dark gothic twist, each tempered with a saucy wit and the ability to impart new meaning onto old standards. Heroines are erotic, independent and canny, and their victories contain a bite, an edge that places these tales outside the traditional happy ending. Stories are beautifully overblown and hyperreal, with a sly, subtle humour that tempers even the darkest tale. This world is very female, where the instigators of action and solvers of perilous events are mothers, daughters, wives and wild girls

Marianne is strictly forbidden to leave her civilized world but, fascinated by these savage outsiders, decides to escape. There, beyond the wire fences, she will discover a decaying paradise, encounter the tattooed Barbarian boy Jewel and go beyond the darkest limits of her imagination.
