Product Description

Review

So well are they written, so clearly and baldly told, and with such narrative power, that you feel you are a doctor caught as in the spell of a mad Ancient Mariner --John Betjeman, Daily Herald

'Miss Kavan is an artist of great distinction. What is remarkable is that the subject of these short stories not only kept the lamp alight in the fog impending insanity but was able to project dramatically the experience of fellow sufferers. There is a beauty in these stories which has nothing to do with their pathological interest and is the result of art. Two or three, if signed by a famous name might rank among that story teller's memorable achievements.' --Desmond McCarthy, The Times

One cannot doubt that what is here is the truth --Tatler

About the Author

ANNA KAVAN, née Helen Woods, was born in Cannes probably in 1901; she was evasive about the facts of her life and spent her childhood in Europe, the USA and England. Twice married and divorced, she began writing while living with her first husband in Burma and was published under her married name of Helen Ferguson. In the wake of the collapse of her second marriage, she suffered the first of many nervous breakdowns and was confined to a clinic in Switzerland; she emerged from her incarceration with a new name Anna Kavan, the protagonist of her 1930 novel Let Me Alone an outwardly different persona and a new literary style. Her first novel in this guise was Asylum Piece, and it achieved for her a certain recognition. She was a long-term heoin addict and suffered periodic bouts of mental illness, and these facets of her life feature prominently in her novels and short stories. She died in 1968 of heart failure soon after the publication of her most celebrated work, the novel Ice.
