Famous quotes containing the word carter:

    Throwing open the door, she brings forth the veritable queen of all the souffles, that spreads its archangelic wings over the entire kitchen as it leaps upwards from the dish in which the force of gravity alone confines it.
    —Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    F.R. Leavis’s “eat up your broccoli” approach to fiction emphasises this junkfood/wholefood dichotomy. If reading a novel—for the eighteenth century reader, the most frivolous of diversions—did not, by the middle of the twentieth century, make you a better person in some way, then you might as well flush the offending volume down the toilet, which was by far the best place for the undigested excreta of dubious nourishment.
    —Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    Nostalgia, the vice of the aged. We watch so many old movies our memories come in monochrome.
    —Angela Carter (1940–1992)
