Ten beloved fairy tales, given new life by the one and only Angela Carter Many classic fairy tale characters might not have survived into the present were it not for Charles Perrault, a seventeenth-century French civil servant who rescued them from the oral tradition and committed them to paper.

The result is a cornucopia of fantastic characters and timeless adventures, stylishly retold by a modern literary visionary.
