CARTER, Angela. Shaking a Leg. Journalism and Writings … edited by Jenny Uglow. London, Catto & Windus, .
8vo. Original boards with illustrated dust-wrappers (not price-clipped); pp. [xiv], 641; fine.
First edition, first printing of the celebrated British novellist's non-fiction writing. In a review of an Ian Sinclair work she writes 'I was scared shitless the first time I went to the East End' (p. 197). This does not set the tone for all of her writing. Angela Carter was certainly one of the most original voices in the 20th century English literature.
