Recommends it for: Everybody!
'Wise Children' is a fantastic example of modern literature.

Carter uses a mixture of post-modernism and the carnivelesque in this novel to create an exciting read. The theme of legitimacy and illigitimacy features prominantly but the book is also light hearted due to the humour and magical realism used.

Carter constantly mocks patriarchy and Shakespeare throughout the novel reflecting her femininst beliefs.

'Wise Children' never fails to disappoint and if it isn't taboo it isn't in this novel!

it took me a while to warm up to angela carter's writing; now that i've got the hang of it, i'm more than a little in love with her loopy universe.

A bright, light book filled with eccentric characters, outlandish situations, and language peppered with aphorisms, bon mots, and all kinds of fun.

Funnier than "Toyshop" and "Dr. Hoffman"; a bit more accesible, too.
