520 1  "Angela Carter's life was an eventful and vagrant one, 
       including travels to Japan, Russia, American and Australia,
       and early success in the 1960s that did not last into the 
       1970s. But by the time of her tragically early death in 
       1992, Carter had become recognised as one of the most 
       successful and original British literary figures of the 
       twentieth century and she has subsequently become one of 
       the most studied authors in British universities. This 
       book disentangles the cult of Angela Carter as 'the fairy 
       godmother of magical realism' from her own claims to be a 
       materialist and 'demythologiser' by placing her within the
       social, political and cultural context within which she 
       worked. Drawing on Carter's own autobiographical articles,
       as well as her fiction, journalism, radio plays and TV 
       programmes, this study examines Carter's engagement with 
       national (particularly English) identity, class, politics 
       and feminism, assessing the relationship between her life,
       her times and her art."--Jacket
