Angela Carter: A Celebration

A celebration of Angela Carter’s life and work

Angela Carter was one of the most original and distinguished novelists of the late twentieth century. Does her work – often regarded as pure fantasy – reflect anything of her life? And how has she been mythologised since her death? Edmund Gordon, winner of the RSL Jerwood Award for non-fiction, publishes his biography of Carter this autumn. He talks to Lisa Appignanesi, Susannah Clapp and Pauline Melville, all friends of Carter, about how his impressions of her shifted as the book progressed.
