Bleak but Brilliant,
This review is from: Tell It to a Stranger (Paperback)
These short stories, written during the Second World War and just after, are suprisingly raw and sharp. But they are among the best I have ever read. There is a particularly haunting one about a soldier coming home on leave and his Lady Bountiful mother being uninterested in him. I cannot understand why so many people 'don't like' short stories. These are a stunning read.
