Note: Our originally scheduled book, Miss Buncle Married, is being reprinted and not currently available. We are substituting the Persephone Book of Short Stories.
“Most of the stories focus on the small, quiet or unspoken intricacies of human relationships rather than grand dramas. The use of metaphor is delicate and subtle; often the women are strong and capable and the men less so; shallow and selfish motives are exposed, and all the stories except the last are third-person."
The dates of the stories range from 1909 to 1986 and there are thirty in all, ten stories by existing Persephone short story writers, ten stories that have already appeared in the Biannually, and ten stories that are completely new to Persephone.
