Margaret Drabble is one of the major literary figures of her generation. In this collection of her complete short fiction from across four decades, she examines the intense private worlds and passions of everyday people. From one man's honeymooning epiphany in 'Hassan's Tower' to the journeying fantasies of 'A Voyage to Cythera', and from the sharp joy of 'The Merry Widow' to the bloody reality of the collection's title story, these are moving, witty and provocative tales, exploring cruel and loving relationships, social change and personal obsessions, and confirming her status as a leading practitioner of the art of the short story.

Brims with sharply observed life and the author's seemingly infinite sympathy for "ordinary women" -- Joyce Carol Oates Drabble writes so penetratingly about the female condition that it is impossible not to laugh, wince and admire -- Amanda Craig * New Statesman *
