Bad Books for Bad People: The Bloody Chamber

Listen to the podcast here!

In the latest mini episode of my podcast, Bad Books for Bad People, Jack and I take a look at the “title track” from Angela Carter’s famed short story collection, The Bloody Chamber. This feminist reimagining of the Bluebeard story blends sensuous language, heady atmosphere, and clever inversions of typical fairy tale tropes.

What perils await young women as they venture into the wider world? How do fairy tales translate into the modern world? Is there a reason why some stories end exactly where they do? Find out all this and more in this month’s mini episode of Bad Books for Bad People.
