Good Women Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Jane Stevenson arrived on the British literary scene with a book called Several Deceptions.

A collection of four novellas, it was unashamedly erudite, marvellously witty and just a little bit cruel.

It revived a neglected form quite brilliantly. Now, after four acclaimed novels, she returns with another sparkling novella collection.

In 'Light My Fire' a passionate relationship cannot withstand a clash of tastes and an ancient Aga; a housewife's life is transformed when she starts to see angels in 'Walking with Angels'; and 'Garden Guerillas' follows a widow plotting an elaborate horticultural revenge on her daughter-in-law.

Despite being framed by domesticity, these stories are wickedly potent and each has a string in its tale.
