Subjects addressed include social fictions, carnivale, gendered subjectivities, feminist polemic, contemporary theory, and narrative s complicity with myth. Particular attention is paid to the motifs of the confidence trick and the ludic game .

? Essential reading for scholars of contemporary literature and theory, and for all lovers of Angela Carter s fiction who wish to better understand the complexities of her work Salman Rushdie has said that Carter s novels are like nobody else s- Gustar explores this singularity by discussing the challenge and richness of her metaphorical style, and by elucidating her uses of intertextuality and theory in terms that are accessible. Carter s works and writing are viewed not only as an educational challenge, but as an engagement with the comic possibilities inherent in doubleness, duplicity, and disbelief.

Angela Carter is shown to be among those writers and theorists who pose a significant challenge to the centrisms of Western culture by explicitly engaging the relationship between writing and desire.
