Burning Your Boats: Collected Short Stories

Book Information

This title comes with an introduction by Salman Rushdie. 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 gathered for the first time; this is a key collection and a major event for Angela Carter aficionados.
