Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber - Dana Kinstler

In the lead story of Angela Carter’s collection, The Bloody Chamber, the virgin teenaged bride longs for sex that could kill her. Once she has sex with her husband, who, coincidentally, turns out to be Bluebeard, she taps into a longing that leaves her with a “certain queasy craving like the cravings of pregnant women for the taste of coal or chalk or tainted food, for the renewal of his caresses.” She is haunted by her predator, just as I have been haunted by Angela Carter since I first read her over twenty years ago.
