Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0701177993, Hardcover)A new collection of stories from Jane Gardam, a writer at the height of her powers — well-known for her caustic wit, free-wheeling imagination, love of humanity and wicked powers of observation, with a hint of the bizarre.

These stories mix a sardonic wit with a delicate tenderness and a touch of the surreal. They range from a Victorian mansion, converted into a home for unmarried mothers, to a wartime hospital which is the scene for a job interview in the middle of the Blitz; from ghost stories to a one-night stand - and its ironic punishment - to the tangle of emotions felt by a mother for her daughter.
