Editorial Reviews

Margaret Atwood
"She was, among other things, a quirky, original and baroque stylist, a trait especially marked in 'The Bloody Chamber' - her vocabulary a mix of finely tuned phrased, luscious adjectives, witty athorism, and hearty, up-verse vulgarity." -- Observer (London)
Joyce Carol Oates
"Distinguished by bold, inflected language and ornate, indeed often bloody imagery; it's aesthetic agenda is a wilful appropriation of the old tales and legends of the patriarchal world." -- New York Times Book Review

What People are saying about this

Ian McEwan
"She writes a prose that blends itself to magnificent set pieces of factidious sensuality...dreams, myths, fairy tales, metamorphoses the unruly unconscious, epic journeys and a highly sensual celebration of sexuality in both its most joyous and darkest manifestations."
