Angela Carter's Book of Wayward Girls and Wicked Women

by Various authors, edited by Angela Carter
£8.99   paperback  Virago Press Ltd (2016)

Angela Carter This bestselling collection of stories extols the female virtues of discontent, sexual disruptiveness and bad manners.
 
Here are subversive tales - by Ama Ata Aidoo, Jane Bowles, Angela Carter, Colette, Bessie Head, Jamaica Kincaid and Katherine Mansfield among others - all have one thing in common: the wish to restore adventuresses and revolutionaries to their rightful position as models for all women.
 
Reflecting the wide-ranging intelligence and deliciously anarchic taste of Angela Carter, some of these stories celebrate toughness and resilience, some of them low cunning: all of them are about not being nice.
