Product description

This title comes with an introduction by Audrey Niffenegger. "Love" is Angela Carter's fifth novel and was first published in 1971. With surgical precision it charts the destructive emotional war between a young woman, her husband and his disruptive brother as they move through a labyrinth of betrayal, alienation and lost connections. This revised edition has lost none of Angela Carter's haunting power to evoke the ebb of the 1960s, and includes an afterword which describes the progress of the survivors into the anguish of middle age.

Review quote

"* 'An excessively stylish tale about a fatal love triangle in provincial Bohemia..The novel and its afterword form a fascinating study, an erstwhile aesthetic object unravelled into realism and commitment' Lorna Sage, Guardian * 'Carter observes her characters with a cool detachment as if they were specimens on a slide..She catches acutely the dying throes of the love generation, when Swinging London had run to seed' New Society * 'Angela Carter has language at her fingertips' New Statesman * 'Whatever her subject, Angela Carter' writes like a dream sometimes a nightmare' Sunday Telegraph"
