Description

Social prejudice, apartheid, emigration, ghosts, families, marriage. All the stories in this collection are examples of inner vision, awareness of the gulf between hopes and dreams and the frequent hostility of the real world. Funny, ferocious, dreamlike, fantastical, exciting and sometimes disturbing, these stories offer an extraordinarily varied range of moods and voices. From Elizabeth Bowen and Viginia Woolf, to Alice Munro and Rose Tremain, this is a celebration of some of the last century's finest shirt-story writers.show more
