No-one else was ever arrested for the axe murders, but Lizzie Borden was acquitted. Angela Carter explores her psyche …

For fans or students of Angela Carter, it’s worth noting that the BBC seem to regularly stage her work, or feature her in their playlist of favourite/important authors.

And here are a couple more links to radio adaptations that are available to listen to online, for free, but for a limited period.

Firstly, you’ve got 12 days from today to access Lizzie’s Tiger – a half-hour reading of a fictional story from the childhood of the infamous Lizzie Borden (the prime suspect in the brutal axe murders of her father and step-mother).

Also, as part of a series of five adaptations of fairytales, you have 15 days from today to listen to a 15-minute reading of The Company of Wolves, her adult take on Little Red Riding Hood.
