Twins, Shakespeare, incest, clever story at times, but something seemed amiss.
The characters never mature, they all seem so stuck in the past. I guess that was probably the point though, show business can take a lot out of you, leaving you yearning for what you had.
This was my first experience with Angela Carter, and thankfully was not my last. I wouldn't recommend reading this one first out of all her works, unless you have a strong love for Shakespeare or the stage.
