Book description
Written for the women's magazines of the day, literally to provide the family's 'bread and butter,' these miniature classics show the remarkable range and dexterity of this much loved author. Here, a respectable woman leaves her husband on the cruise ship to lunch with a bullfighter; Mum blows her post-office savings on a hat; immutable Bertha reveals a 'past' to her best friend; Emma agonises over her first love in Paris. Masterfully crafted, the stories unveil the small coincidences and short-sighted mistake that shape our lives. (From the book cover.)
