The publication of Encounters in1923 launched what would become a luminous forty-year writing career that spanned the advent of modernist literature, the Second World War, and the fraught years preceding the political turmoil of “the Troubles” in Ireland. These gem-like stories display Elizabeth Bowen’s uncanny ability to represent un-belonging, dispossession, and the fragility of selfhood. With astonishing literary adroitness and psychological acuity, she depicts the comedy of British class society, the fracturing of external perception, the pervasive influence of suppressed sexuality, and the abiding force of adolescent epiphanies. Her deft use of language to convey the interior atmosphere of her characters’ lives renders these tales as moving as they are timeless.

Review:

“Her imaginative power to envision a scene is almost hallucinatory.” —Eudora Welty, The New York Times Book Review

“Bowen’s stories show the awesome capabilities of the English language and the surprise and mystery of the human soul.”—Anne Tyler, The New Republic

“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

“Bowen had an eye as sharp as Henry James’s, a wonderfully shrewd yet accommodating sensibility, and a sublime literary style.”—John Banville, The Irish Times

“As unsparing and quietly devastating a writer as exists in English.”—Sadie Stein, The Paris Review
