Burning Your Boats Summary

Burning Your Boats by Angela Carter

As well as her eight novels, Angela Carter published four wonderful collections of short stories during her lifetime, and contributed stories to several anthologies. The stories were scattered amongst different publishers, and a couple of the volumes are now out of print. In BURNING YOUR BOATS they are gethered together for the first time; this is a key collection and a major event for Angela Carter aficionados. It brings some important work back into print, including THE BLOODY CHAMBER - her seminal collection of fairytales in which she rewrote stories such as Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty and the Beast in her characteristically subversive, earthy way. This publication in 1995 will begin a major Angela Carter promotion; a celebration of the publication of her Collected Works, and a major push for the back list, with an order form for all of the Chatto, Vintage and Virago titles. This enticing, fat volume of Carter's surprising and inventive stories will be one of the most exciting events in the promotion.
