Angela Carter

Angela Carter was her own woman, in my opinion, and her own author. Glancing over her bibliography as a journalist and novelist, I find evidence of Angela Carter writing what she wanted to, and but necessarily what her contemporaries did.

Angela Carter was born in 1940 in England and raised by her maternal grandmother. Not surprising, she is a feminist, and one of the facets about her writing that I find interesting, is her notion of magical realism, which is very unlike for example Isabel Allende.

Angela Carter left an impressive bibliography, but unfortunately, she died of lung cancer at the age of 52 (in 1992).
