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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A fine, fierce, incandescent talent * Scotland on Sunday *
Burning Your Boats brings together her four volumes of short fiction...They testify to Carter's range, daring and her invention. An important book * Irish Times *
A writer cultured in every sense of the word, whose syntax is ever artful, whose vocabulary is zestfully arcane, whose erudition manifests itself in her work in a shimmering play of parody and illusion. She was one of the century's best writers, and her stories are among her finest works * Sunday Times *
This is the voice the young generation are flocking to read and study, and these marvellous collected stories wonderfully explain why no pigeon-hole could ever contain her creator. When you read all the stories collected together, a sense of joy erupts that such writing can exist * Daily Telegraph *
World-class stories, woven from their author's high humour, glittering imagination, vital erudition and warm intelligence * Independent *
