5.0 out of 5 stars a beautifully sharp collection, 2 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Woman Novelist and Other Stories (Paperback)
Sharp without being bitter, these short stories have an edge that makes it difficult to stop at just one. Though Gardner writes about a woman's world, and from the perspective of women, her characters are not the wide-eyed young ingenues one might expect from titles such as 'Summer with the Baron'. Instead these women often behave badly, and Gardner makes no apologies for them.

I particularly enjoyed the fantastically 40s names of Gardner's characters. Beryls and Millicents rub shoulders with Margots and Mabels, Ralphs and Arthurs, and all feel the shadow of war creep up on them.
