Last night, I finished reading Angela Carter's Wise Children for the first time (not for the last!). Why hadn't somebody tell me about it before?!? It's a funny, naughty, bawdy, riotous, touching, vivid, Shakespeare-and-gin-soaked, lyrical, wise romp through 20th C theatrical history legitimate and otherwise, and that's just the start of a description. So read it. And for purposes of this blog (love your tools), take a look at a British Library site on the novel. We all work differently, but Carter's notebooks and approach to putting a book together are a joy to see.
