Complete Short Stories Paperback
Part of the Virago Modern Classics series
'Elizabeth Taylor is finally being recognised as an important British author: one of great subtlety, great compassion and great depth' Sarah WatersElizabeth Taylor, highly acclaimed author of classic novels such as Angel, A Game of Hide and Seek and Mrs Palfrey at the Claremont, is also renowned for her powerful, acutely observed stories.
Here for the first time, the stories - including some only recently rediscovered - are collected in one volume.
From the awkward passions of lonely holiday-makers to the anticipation of three school friends preparing for their first dance, from the minor jealousies and triumphs of marriage to tales of outsiders struggling to adapt to the genteel English countryside, with a delicate, witty touch Elizabeth Taylor illuminates the nuances of ordinary lives.
