Angela Carter

From Academic Kids

Angela Carter (May 7, 1940-February 16, 1992) was an English novelist and journalist, known for her post-feminist magical realist works.

Born Angela Olive Stalker in Eastbourne, in 1940, she at first worked as a journalist on the Croydon Advertiser. She married twice, leaving her first husband using the proceeds of the Somerset Maugham Award for literature and spending two years living in Tokyo. She then explored the United States, Asia and Europe. These experiences had a positive influence on her later writing. She spent much of the late 1970s and 1980s as a writer in residence at universities, including the University of Sheffield, Brown University, the University of Adelaide and the University of East Anglia.

Carter also contributed many articles to The Guardian, The Independent and New Statesman.

Two of her works have been adapted into films, The Magic Toyshop in 1987, and The Company of Wolves in 1984.

Angela Carter died in 1992 after developing cancer.
