Burning Your Boats Reviews

"A fine, fierce, incandescent talent" * Scotland on Sunday *
"Burning Your Boats brings together her four volumes of short fiction...They testify to Carter's range, daring and her invention. An important book" * Irish Times *
"A writer cultured in every sense of the word, whose syntax is ever artful, whose vocabulary is zestfully arcane, whose erudition manifests itself in her work in a shimmering play of parody and illusion. She was one of the century's best writers, and her stories are among her finest works" * Sunday Times *
"This is the voice the young generation are flocking to read and study, and these marvellous collected stories wonderfully explain why no pigeon-hole could ever contain her creator. When you read all the stories collected together, a sense of joy erupts that such writing can exist" * Daily Telegraph *
"World-class stories, woven from their author's high humour, glittering imagination, vital erudition and warm intelligence" * Independent *
