Famous quotes containing the words angela carter and/or carter:

    And, oh God, in my misspent youth as a housewife, I, too, used to bake bread, in those hectic and desolating days just prior to the woman’s movement, when middle-class women were supposed to be wonderful wives and mothers, gracious hostesses.... I used to feel so womanly when I was baking my filthy bread.

    —Jimmy Carter (James Earl Carter, Jr.)
