Wise Children by Angela Carter

Book Description

This title is presented with an introduction by Ali Smith. A richly comic tale of the tangled fortunes of two theatrical families, the Hazards and the Chances, Angela Carter's witty and bawdy novel is populated with as many sets of twins, and mistaken identities as any Shakespeare comedy, and celebrates the magic of over a century of show business.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » This is perhaps Angela Carter's wittiest novel, an ostentatiously charming meditation on Englishness, class and Shakespeare that plays more games with twins and identity than The Comedy of Errors and has more sudden reversals of fortune than Lear. The Hazard dynasty dominates the legitimate stage, while its byblows, the narrator Dora Chance and her sister Nora, become stars of music hall and revue. This is Carter's least experimental novel, only post-modern in its insistence that the art of fiction is about fun, and about games. (Kirkus UK)
