Description - Selected Stories: Text Classics by Amy Witting

Amy Witting was a master of the short story, the genre in which she felt 'most at home'. Her subjects -childhood and school, marriage and loneliness, the cruelty of men and women - are rendered in a crisp, understated style, at once compassionate and unsentimental. This new selection of twenty pieces from across five decades includes the acclaimed novella-length 'The Survivors' and the final appearance of Isobel Callaghan from I for Isobel.
