THE PASSION OF NEW EVE. Angela Carter.

THE PASSION OF NEW EVE. New York and London: Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, [1977]. Octavo, cloth-backed boards. First U.S. edition. "A wild feminist futurist fantasy ... A marvelously cruel and imaginative fable about sexual identity and the American landscape." - Barron (ed), Fantasy Literature 4A-66. "In this novel and Englishman of the future named Evelyn travels to a decadent America ravaged by war and is captured by a deranged female scientist who changes him into a woman, intending to impregnate him with his own sperm. In other words, this is a typical Carter fantasy, full of phantasmagoric effects, surrealistic visions, bizarre sexual reversals, and mythic overtones." - Barron (ed), Fantasy and Horror (1999) 7-70. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-224. Pringle, Modern Fantasy: The Hundred Best Novels 62. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 380. Survey of Modern Fantasy Literature III, pp. 1212-15. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#159940).
