A brother and sister, shattered by the horrors of war, find solace in a tender, incestuous marriage. A wife, bored and rancorous, stitches a widows quilt. An old level-crossing keeper watches over his speechless, disfigured niece. In this magnificent selection of her stories, ranging from 1932 to 1977, Sylvia Townsend Warner casts a compassionate but piercing eye on the oddities of love. Theres the joyously farcical story of the mouse and the four-poster bed, the strange fugue of a sad woman and her doppelganger cat, the composer unexpectedly spending an afternoon living for others.

And finally, theres the skein of stories reporting on the events of Elfland, precise, witty and strange. Readers who know this authors work will be delighted, while newcomers will find the perfect introduction to a writer of incomparable style and substance.
