9780099287735: Collected Stories (Vintage Classics)

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY A. N. WILSON

Throughout these seventy-nine stories - love stories, ghost stories, stories of childhood, of English middle-class life in the twenties and thirties, of London during the Blitz - Elizabeth Bowen combines social comedy and reportage, perception and vision in an oeuvre which reveals, as Angus Wilson affirms in his introduction, that 'the instinctive artist is there at the very heart of her work'.

Review:

"Bowen's stories show the awesome capabilities of the English language and the surprise and mystery of the human soul" ( Anne Tyler)

"Bowen's stories are novels that have been split open like rocks and reveal the glitter of the naked crystals which have formed them" (V.S. Pritchett Vogue)

Book Description:

Celebrated for her much-admired novels, including The Heat of the Day and The Death of the Heart, Bowen established herself in the front rank of the century's writers equally through her short fiction.
