Review:

Her rich imagination and her beautiful use of words raise these stories into the ranks of genius. --John Betjeman Daily Telegraph

These short stories blaze with Mediterranean colour . . . the intensity of a Flaubert is offset by the devilish wink of a Saki. Lee s endless invention and arrogant splendour of style make engrossing reading.' --Independent on Sunday

Quite literally bewildering supernatural tales, a kind of Italianate Arabian Nights . . . More than just rattling good yarns, these are works of extraordinary imagination, and one wonders why they re not better known. --Gay Times

About the Author:

VERNON LEE, the pseudonym of Violet Paget (1856 - 1935), began her career as an acclaimed art historian, before branching out into sociology and fiction. Among her many contemporary admirers were Browning, Walter Pater, Shaw, Whistler and Edith Wharton.
