Description

In the short fiction of Angela Carter, the landmarks of reality disappear and give way to a landscape of riotous and uncensored sensibility.

The city of Tokyo turns into a mirrored chamber reflecting the impossible longings of an exiled Englishwoman abandoned by her Japanese lover.

An itinerant puppet show becomes a theatre of murderous lust.

A walk through the forest ends in a nightmarish encounter with a gun-toting nymph and her hermaphrodite 'aunt'.

Not simply a book of tales, Fireworks is a headlong plunge into an alternate universe, the unique creation of one of the most fertile, dark, irreverent, and baroquely beautiful imaginations in contemporary fiction.
