These short stories deal with ideas about mutability, improvement and escape into new worlds, and involve characters who constantly fail to understand themselves or anyone else. They also celebrate the small success or fragment of knowledge which can contribute to a person's experience of life.

Review:

"Talented to the point of rare originality" (Independent)

"An expert at conveying the kind of apparently inconsequential detail that might be the moment of definition in someone's life" (Times Literary Supplement)

"The stories have a strange, fairy-tale quality: the simple, beautiful prose, the sense of inevitability, the use of allusion and metaphor to suggest undercurrents of disturbing portent" (Selina Hastings Daily Telegraph)

"Her talent is at its best" (Susan Hill)

"A quintessentially English writer - her work has a charm and finesse, a civilised irony" (Guardian)

Book Description:

Beautifully rejacketed along with Rose Tremain's backlist titles in a stunning series style.
