'I think few of the stories in Loss will leave readers cold...'

Victoria Hislop, bestselling author and champion of the short story, has chosen her favourite short stories by women writers. Here are prizewinners, famous wits, well-known feminists, national treasures and rising stars.

All the stories in this volume are about loss: lost lives, lost loves, lost innocence, even a lost leopard. The many ways in which loss touches our lives are shown in these varied stories.

CONTRIBUTORS: Katherine Mansfield, Elizabeth Bowen, Dorothy Parker, Shirley Jackson, Flannery O'Connor, Elizabeth Taylor, Jean Rhys, Anna Kavan, Muriel Spark, Ellen Gilchrist, Penelope Fitzgerald, Lorrie Moore, Hilary Mantel, Susan Hill, Colette Paul, Yiyun Li, Helen Simpson, Edna O'Brien, Edith Pearlman, Emma Donoghue, Carrie Tiffany and Lucy Wood.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected! 1 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read and loved The Island, I thought this was by Victoria Hislop and it is a collection of strange short stories by other authors!
Rather sad and dismal. I suppose that is why it is called Loss.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing 17 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having read other books by this author, I was disappointed by the choice of stoires in this book. Others may love it, but it was not for me.
