WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ANGUS WILSON
'Bowen's stories show the awesome capabilities of the English language and the surprise and mystery of the human soul' Anne Tyler
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'.
