MAC'S BACKS FEMME BOOK CLUB DISCUSSES THE BLOODY CHAMBER

Carter was a storytelling sorceress, the literary godmother of Neil Gaiman, Audrey Niffenegger, J.K. Rowling, and other contemporary masters of supernatural fiction. In her masterpiece, The Bloody Chamber --which includes the story that is the basis of Neil Jordan's 1984 movie 'The Company of Wolves'--she breathed new life into familiar fairy tales and legends in a style steeped in the romantic trappings of the gothic tradition. This edition features a new introduction by Kelly Link, the Nebula and World Fantasy Award-wining author, one of a new generation of writers who've been inspired by Carter's brand of fantastical, subversive, boundlessly imaginative fiction.

Angela Carter (1940-1992) wrote nine novels and numerous short stories, as well as nonfiction, radio plays, and the screenplay for Neil Jordan's 1984 movie The Company of Wolves, based on her story of the same name. She won numerous literary awards, traveled and taught widely in the United States, and lived in London.
