Book description
Elizabeth Taylor, acclaimed author of classic novels such as Angel, A Game of Hide and Seek and Mrs Palferey at the Claremont, is also renowned for her powerful, acutely observed stories.
Here for the first time, the stories - some only recently discovered - are collected in one volume.
