The Magic Toyshop - Angela Carter There's only one thing better than a good book, and that's a good book that introduces you to a brand new author. Angela Carter may well just be my new obsession. Carter's writing is at times, exquisite and at times, harrowing. This has all the elements of a fairy tale but goes much deeper than that. Sex, feminism and incest all get a look in. This book is both claustrophobic and liberating. The ending is abrupt and a little jarring because of that. With hindsight though, what else was there left to say?
