Edmund Gordon’s The Invention of Angela Carter: A Biography is now available, published by Chatto & Windus. This is the first authorised, and indeed the first, biography of Angela Carter to appear. The book traces Carter’s life and works, drawing on a number of previously unavailable materials such as journals and letter, and features many wonderful photographs of Carter, her family, and her numerous friends.
I wish to thank Chatto & Windus for providing me with a review copy. At the recent Cheltenham Literature Festival I was able to meet the book’s author, Edmund Gordon, and have my copy signed.
