They explore various facets of Carter's work and life and open new avenues for further research. Angela Carter and the Fairy Tale is a diverse collection of scholarly essays, fiction, personal reminiscence, and interviews from an international group of scholars, artists, and novelists. Angela Carter and the Fairy Tale will be of interest to those pursuing research in contemporary literature, folklore, and women's studies. It will also serve as a useful reference point for other readers who wish to learn more about the fairy tales written by this dynamic author.
