Wise Children by Angela Carter

Wise Children is a comic tale of the tangled fortunes of two theatrical families. A witty and bawdy novel, it is populated with as many sets of twins and mistaken identities as any Shakespearean comedy. Celebrating the magic of over a century of show business, this is, most of all, a ribald satire on Britain’s enduring class system.
Angela Carter was born in London.
