Description

‘One of our finest writers.’ Neil Gaiman
‘One of the most shamefully under-read great British authors of the past100 years.’ Sarah Waters


‘Diminutive masterpieces … Hand yourself over to be enchanted.’Guardian


‘Extraordinary, lucid wildness.’ Helen MacDonald


‘Glinting perfection’ The Times


Decades after her divorce, a lady returns to the village of her tumultuousmarriage. A railway carriage hosts a charged schoolboy encounter. A murder
raises fears of blackmail. A woman waits anxiously in a cafe before elopingto Paris. Another steals a friend’s kitchen knife.


In these bittersweet tales, the author of Lolly Willowes reveals her mastery ofthe short story, celebrated by the New Yorker for decades. Sylvia TownsendWarner is a tragicomic chronicler of the heart’s entanglements, from marriagesand affairs to widowhood; and a champion of outsiders, whether singlewomen, the elderly or wartime refugees.


Witty and subversive, her stories meld tradition and transgression, with secretsins and fetishes as much a feature of English life as eccentric aunts, country
houses and parish churches.
