Writers Teaching Writers Teaching Writers....

Today I got a copy of Burning Your Boats... the collected short stories of Angela Carter with an introduction by Salman Rushdie.

He called her the most individual, independent and idiosyncratic of writers

I kind of like that... but why did I buy this book?

because I loved meeting Ann Enright's writing. And I read that Angela Carter taught her. And I wanted to learn too, from both of them.

I LOVE Angela Carter's writing, she is one of the writers I wish I had met. Ah well. Enjoy!
