The Second Penguin Book of English Short Stories Paperback
Edited by Christopher Dolley
'The short story is enjoying a revival all the more encouraging when viewed against the gloom surrounding the future of the literary novel ...'.
In this title, fifteen further short stories from the golden age of the short story offer more gems from some of the masters of the genre.
Whether it is the lyrical prose of Thomas Hardy or the irreverent wit of Kingsley Amis, the monologues of Virgina Woolf or Muriel Spark, the authors here demonstrate that the vitality of the form remains as compelling today as when these stories were originally published.
