The fourth book in our Winter/Spring 2019 RETELLINGS book club is Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber. More information about the book club is available here. All you need to do to participate is read the book in advance and come on the night of the discussion. As always, book club titles are $1 off in advance of the discussion. And we kindly ask that you rsvp for the book club by emailing us at info@riffraffpvd.com so we have a sense of how many people will be coming.


About The Bloody Chamber & Other Stories

Angela Carter was a storytelling sorceress, the literary godmother of Neil Gaiman, David Mitchell, Audrey Niffenegger, J. K. Rowling, Kelly Link, and other contemporary masters of supernatural fiction. In her masterpiece, The Bloody Chamber—which includes the story that is the basis of Neil Jordan’s 1984 movie The Company of Wolves—she spins subversively dark and sensual versions of familiar fairy tales and legends like “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Bluebeard,” “Puss in Boots,” and “Beauty and the Beast,” giving them exhilarating new life in a style steeped in the romantic trappings of the gothic tradition.
