Angela Carter was one of the most acclaimed British novelists of the post-war period. She spent the 1960s living in Clifton amidst a flourishing ‘provincial bohemia’ of folk clubs, artists and radical politics. I met with Dr. Stephen E. Hunt to discuss his work on Angela Carter and the counterculture in 1960s and 1970s Bristol and Bath, in which he takes Carter’s life and work as a starting point to explore ‘the artistic, radical and experimental communities that flourished at the time.’
