5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, 18 Dec 2011

This review is from: The Man Who Wanted To Smell Books: Selected Short Stories (Canongate Classics) (Paperback)
Elspeth Davie is not well known, but I heard some of her stories on Radio 4 Extra and was fascinated. She has an eye for the unusual and an elegant, poetic writing style. Often quite gothic in style, lightly humorous, dry, original- a really classic collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection from a little known author, 6 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I heard some of these on the radio and thought I would try the book as they sounded interesting. I wasn't sure what to expect, not knowing the author, but was delighted with the quality and variety of the stories. The title story really appeals to me but there were none that I didn't enjoy. I would definitely recommend it to lovers of short stories.
