More Information
Angela Carter, born 1940 and died 1992, was a fabulous author with a dazzling style of prose and character depth. There are elements of feminism, magic and sexuality in her work. Her best work is probably Shadow Dance and The Infernal Desire Machines of Doctor Hoffman. All her work is collectable, especially so the early works which are now quite valuable. Many of the titles were not published in America. Those that saw dual release were first published in England. The value of English 1st editions is considerably higher than their US counterparts.

Values for collectable copies have risen steadily, at the time of writing, and her work seems to be gaining appreciation. Indeed the first book is now regarded as something of a cornerstone title for those who collect modern literary firsts.
