Angela Carter: Magic Toyshop; Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman; Wise Children

Angela Carter: Magic Toyshop; Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman; Wise Children. 1996 Quality Paperback Books omnibus. Carter was a British author whose fiction had a touch of magic. Salmon Rushdie wrote in her New York Times obituary: " repeat: Angela Carter was a great writer. I repeat this because in spite of her worldwide reputation, here in Britain she somehow never quite had her due. Of course, many writers knew that she was that rare thing, a real one-off, nothing like her on the planet; and so did many bewitched, inspired readers. But for some reason she was not placed where she belonged -- at the center of the literature of her time, at the heart. [...] With Angela Carter's death English literature has lost its high sorceress, its benevolent witch-queen, a burlesque artist of genius and antic grace." Included here are three novels from 1967, 1972, and 1991.
