'Curiosity is the most fleeting of pleasures; the moment it is satisfied, it ceases to exist and it always proves very, very expensive.' Angela Carter's playful and subversive retellings of Charles Perrault's classic fairy tales conjure up a world of resourceful women, black-hearted villains, wily animals and incredible transformations. In these seven stories, bristling with frank, earthy humour and gothic imagination, nothing is as it seems. This book includes: "Bluebeard", "Little Red Riding Hood", "Puss in Boots", "The Sleeping Beauty of the Wood", "Cinderella: or, The Glass Slipper", "Ricky with the Tuft", and "The Foolish Wishes".
