Críticas:

"A wonderfully written book, ironical, cerebral, elegant . . . distinguished by bold, inflected language and ornate, indeed often bloody, imagery." --Joyce Carol Oates, "The New York Times Book Review"
"The tales are retold by Angela Carter with all her supple and intoxicating bravura." --"The New York Review of Books"
"She was, among other things, a quirky, original, and baroque stylist, a trait especially marked in "The Bloody Chamber"--her vocabulary a mix of finely tuned phrase, luscious adjective, witty aphorism, and hearty, up-theirs vulgarity." --Margaret Atwood, "The""Observer"
"She writes a prose that lends itself to magnificent set pieces of fastidious sensuality . . . dreams, myths, fairy tales, metamorphoses, the unruly unconscious, epic journeys, and a highly sensual celebration of sexuality in both its most joyous and darkest manifestations." --Ian McEwan
"The best horror writer of the 20th century you've probably never heard of . . . Her most celebrated book is a high gothic collection of short stories called "The Bloody Chamber" that you should read immediately if the genre holds any appeal for you." --"New York" magazine's "Vulture"
"Since I first came across "The Bloody Chamber," I have kept a copy with me wherever I have been living. . . . The things that I needed, when I was beginning to think about writing short stories, were the things that I found in "The Bloody Chamber." . . . Reading Carter, each time, [is] electrifying. It [lights] up the readerly brain and all the writerly nerves. . . . What we don't have, of course, is any more Angela Carter stories. And how I yearn for exactly this." --Kelly Link, from the Introduction

Her masterpiece . . . Sex isn t a subtext in "The Bloody Chamber, "but the text itself. . . . Eroticism hangs heavy in the air here . . . like an expensive, drugging perfume. . . . Carter produced . . . fiction that was lavishly fabulist and infinitely playful, with a crown jeweler s style, precise but fully colored. . . . Her books are . . . revered by fans of speculative fiction stateside and have influenced writers as diverse as Rick Moody, Sarah Waters, Neil Gaiman, Jeff VanderMeer, Jeanette Winterson and Kelly Link. Salman Rushdie, who became her friend, described her as the first great writer I ever met. Yet her legacy has been a slow and stealthy one, invisible to many of the readers who have benefited from it. . . . Most contemporary literary fiction with a touch of magic, from Karen Russell s to Helen Oyeyemi s, owes something to Angela Carter s trail-blazing. . . . If our personal and literary spaces feel more wide open now, she s one of the ones we have to thank. Laura Miller, "Salon"
A deluxe edition of her masterpiece, a bold collection of short stories tinged with the supernatural . . . just in time for the 75th anniversary of Carter s birth. "Entertainment Weekly"
"The Bloody Chamber" is such an important book to me. Angela Carter, for me, is still the one who said: You see these fairy stories, these things that are sitting at the back of the nursery shelves? Actually, each one of them is a loaded gun. Each of them is a bomb. Watch: if you turn it right it will blow up. And we all went: Oh my gosh, she s right you can blow things up with these! Neil Gaiman, "The Daily Telegraph"
