Victor Sawdon Pritchett was one of the major English writers of the twentieth-century (as a travel writer and novelist, as well as Britain s best-known literary journalist for several decades), and the writer who established the short story as a unique genre. A niece clears out her dead aunt s house, a man in his 70 s falls in love with a 25-year-old poet, V.S. Pritchett s stories focus on the richness of everyday life, its comedy and pathos, written with a delightful curiosity that transforms the commonplace into the best short stories of the twentieth-century. This range of stories highlights Pritchett s delight in the fantasies that sustain his characters, no matter how absurd, with a sympathy all readers will identify with.
