Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and Other Classic Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault
Ten beloved fairy tales, given new life by the one and only Angela Carter
Many classic fairy tale characters might not have survived into the present were it not for Charles Perrault, a seventeenth-century French civil servant who rescued them from the oral tradition and committed them to paper. Three centuries later, Angela Carter, widely regarded as one of England's most imaginative writers, adapted them for contemporary readers. The result is a cornucopia of fantastic characters and timeless adventures, stylishly retold by a modern literary visionary.
