As some of you will know, Angela Carter attended Bristol University and stayed in the city for many years after graduating. A major new exhibition celebrating her life and work is opening at the weekend. Bristol 24/7 has a preview by way of an interview with the co-curators. It sounds very much from what they say that any influences she might have had from or into the world of speculative fiction will be carefully elided. After all, this is the British arts establishment we are talking about here, and one wouldn’t want to stoop to involvement in -gasp- genre, would one? However, Carter’s work stands for itself so I am sure that there will be lots for us folks to see in the exhibition.
