The Works also has contemporary and modern photographs to illustrate the locations of the fiction, eg "Ricemans Steps" in London or "Bursley" in Stoke-on-Trent.
I guess only enthusiasts will be drawn to this collection but that is a shame as Bennett is such a great writer who in his lifetime was unbelievably popular. His short stories are an easy way for the new reader to dip a toe in the water and discover his sense of fun and humanity. He wrote about the Potteries as only a native would do even though he removed himself as soon as he could from the pits and pots of Hanley. For those of us who are still resident in the Five Towns, this collection is a must and at around two guineas, it is the sort of bargain any Stokie would really appreciate.
I have read the first three stories and my Kindle tells me that I have so far read only 5% of the download!
The only reason for a rather niggardly 4 stars is the electronic construction of the piece - it's irritating enough not to have page numbers but when the % figure refers to the entire collected works rather than the particular work you are reading at the time - e.g "Anna" ocupies 2% to 5% so each percentage is dozens, perhaps a hundred or so pages.
