miss z: the dark young lady








i got this lovely little book from etsy seller vintage books n' things...i am a long-time angela carter fan! i think angela carter wrote only two stories for the young adult; this one and another titled, the donkey king. i've never read the latter...maybe it's a re-telling of the grimms' tale the donkey? there is surprisingly little information that i could find online about both.
this book also has unique and wonderful illustrations by eros keith.

This book enchanted me as a child -both the illustrations and the mysterious story.It was unlike any of the other books!
Thanks for sharing-I googled Miss Z out of nostalgia-42 years old now and would love to read it again.

This book enchanted me as a child.
Both the illustrations and the mysterious story left vivid impressions. The book was/is so unlike the rest of children.s stories.
Would love to read it again at 42 years old!
Such a pleasure to see those illustrations again...
