Product description


'One of the great lionesses of modern English literature' Harper's Bazaar.

'A sparkling river of wit' Mail on Sunday.

'Weldon's stories pull no punches' Independent on Sunday.

'Weldon at her best ... Times have changed and Weldon is one of the people who have changed them' Kate Saunders, The Times.

'It is Weldon's immersion in the real world, and her fascination with changes in fashion, trend and mood, that gives these stories their spirit ... For most women love and lust are synonyms for life. And that, as almost each of these stories shows, is where the mischief comes in' Herald Scotland.

'The perfect way to reacquaint yourself with a great writer or discover her for the first time' Bella.

'Insightful, emotionally truthful tales rich with female characters' Diva Magazine.

'Weldon's voice is the star ... wise, witty and, well, yes, mischievous ... Swiftian, elegant, droll and thought-provoking' Julian Clary, Daily Telegraph.

'Magically insistent' Janet Ellis.

'The acclaimed author has chosen 21 of her favourite short stories, spanning her 50-year career, for this enjoyable collection ... Also included is a new novella, The Ted Dreams, a ghost story for our modern age' Choice Magazine.

About the Author

Weldon's work includes more than twenty novels, five collections of short stories, several children's books, nonfiction books, magazine articles, and a number of plays written for television, radio, and the stage. She was awarded a CBE in 2001.
