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

    The end of all stories, even if the writer forebears to mention it, is death, which is where time stops short. Sheherezade knew this, which is why she kept on spinning another story out of the bowels of the last one, never coming to a point where she could say: “This is the end.” Because it would have been.
    Angela Carter (1940–1992)

    There are lots of things that you can brush under the carpet about yourself until you’re faced with somebody whose needs won’t be put off.
    —Angela Carter (1940–1992)
