"From early reflections on jazz and Japan, through vigorous refashionings of vampires and werewolves, to stunning snapshots of real-life outcasts and the glorious but tainted world of "the rich and famous," this complete collection of Angela Carter's short stories gathers together four published books - Fireworks, The Bloody Chamber, Black Venus, American Ghosts and Old World Wonders - with her early work and uncollected stories."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
