Description
The scar drew her whole face sideways and even in profile, with the hideous thing turned away, her face was horribly lop-sided, skin, features and all dragged away from the bone. She was a beautiful girl, a white and golden girl, like moonlight on daisies, a month ago. And yet men still hover around her, more out of curiosity than lust, and none more so than Honeybuzzard, the wildly seductive, dangerously demonic funny man. In this, her first novel, Angela Carter tells a disturbing and delicious tale of shattered beauty and male camaraderie which shows one of the twentieth century's greatest writers at the start of a dazzling career.

Reviews
'Angela Carter's writing is pyrothechnic - fuelled with ideas, packed with images and spangling the night with her starry language. She brings the gift of wonder' OBSERVER 'The boldest of English writers' Lorna Sage 'A great writer ... A real one-off' SALMAN RUSHDIE
