Shadow Dance Summary

Shadow Dance by Angela Carter

The scar drew her whole face sideways and even in profile, with the hideous thing turned away, her face was horribly lop-sided, skin, features and all, dragged away from the bone. She was a beautiful girl, a white and golden girl, like moonlight on daisies, a month ago.'
And yet the men still hover around her, more out of curiosity than lust, and none more so than the wildly seductive, dangerous funny man, Honeybuzzard; lithe as a stick of liquorice, he is the demonic puppet master at the swirling centre of the tale.

'In a modern day horror story gleaming with perfect 1960's detail, she performs a double act, conjuring up just the right amount of unease and perversion beneath the idiosyncratic business of relatively ordinary lives' THE TIMES

Shadow Dance Reviews

Angela Carter's writing is pyrotechnic - fuelled with ideas, packed with images and spangling the night with her starry language. She brings the gift of wonder * OBSERVER *
The boldest of English writers * LORNA SAGE *
A great writer ... A real one-off * SALMAN RUSHDIE *
