The Passion of New Eve

by Angela Carter - £8.99  Virago (1992)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780860683414 | ISBN 10: 0860683419

'I know nothing. I am a tabula erasa, a blank sheet of paper, an unhatched egg. I have not yet become a woman, although I possess a woman's shape. Not a woman, no: both more and less than a real woman. Now I am a being as mythic and monstrous as Mother herself.'
 
New York has become the City of Dreadful Night where dissolute Leilah performs a dance of chaos for Evelyn. But this young Englishman's fate lies in the arid desert, where a many-breasted fertility goddess will wield her scalpel to transform him into the new Eve.
 
An extraordinary journey into the apocalyptic vision of the author.
