The Bloody Chamber - Helen Simpson, Angela Carter I didn't actually know what I was letting myself in for when I picked up this book. It's a collection of stories inspired by fairy tales and old legends. Stories that explore the darker side of the female psyche and sexuality. Thematically, while interesting, not really what I'm looking for but all wrapped up in a luscious, evocative prose with startling imagery that makes them a pleasure to read. Carter is obviously a very talented writer.
