Wise children by Angela Carter
A richly comic tale of the tangled fortunes of two theatrical families, the Hazards and the Chances, Angela Carter’s witty and bawdy novel is populated with as many sets of twins, and mistaken identities as any Shakespeare comedy, and celebrates the magic of over a century of show business.
“It is wise, bawdy, vulgar, eloquent and very, very funny… And the writing is often breathtakingly lyrical… A masterpiece. Please share.” (Guardian)
“Wise Children is Angela Carter’s best book. It deserves many prizes and, better than that, the affection of generations of readers” (Times Literary Supplement)
“Inventive and brilliant” (The Times)
Please come and join us for a chat about this book ….or just books in general.
