With an introduction by a. n. wilson

With an introduction by a. wilson. Throughout these seventy-nine stories - love stories, ghost stories, stories of childhood, of English middle-class life in the twenties and thirties, of London during the Blitz - Elizabeth Bowen combines social comedy and reportage, perception and vision in an oeuvre which reveals, as Angus Wilson affirms in his introduction, that 'the instinctive artist is there at the very heart of her work'. Bowen's stories are novels that have been split open like rocks and reveal the glitter of the naked crystals which have formed them".

Written in the 1950s, the eight stories collected here are brilliantly of their time: the decade of rubber plants, espresso bars and skiffle, of Suez, Teddy Boys and Angry Young Men. With compassion and deadly accuracy, Angus Wilson charts the scandals and secrets of the respectable middle classes - Kennie, the Borstal Boy mascot of an intellectual clique; June Raven, an SW3 hostess who gets over-involved with one of her publisher-husband's authors; Lord Peacehaven, retired megalomaniac; Maurice Liebig, teenage pawn in a family feud; and the mad old man who finds.

Comments to eBook Collected Stories (Paladin Books)
ᵀᴴᴱ ᴼᴿᴵᴳᴵᴻᴬᴸ
Our book club chose this as our selection a while back and while I was hesitant at first (they tend to choose very polite horror) I was happily surprised by this. This is pretty refined stuff... and bears closer reading than the average Stephen King page-turner.
In discussions afterward a person mentioned that she didn't see why a particular tale was often classified as a 'ghost story' when no one in the story was dead... no spooks in sight. But I think that illustrates why I appreciated these stories so much... they really are subtle in their demeanor... and in that story in question the haunting is very much in force... though it might not be as readily apparent or jump out and yell 'BOO!!!'.
These stories require a bit more patience and attention but they really do pay off.

This is a reread for me. I have admired Elizabeth Bowen for many years. Her stories get to the heart of human nature, are tautly written,and stimulate the reader's imagination.

Considered one of the greatest short story writer - I am told - (by the professor who assigned it) - these are masterful descriptions. They immediately put you in a place with details so exquisite that you can hear and smell your surroundings. Her most famous short story is included - The Demon Lover.

Elizabeth Bowen may not be known by many but her writing is a delight. She is in a special class of writers for me including the writers Elizabeth Taylor and Penelope Lively. If you like descriptive writing, you will certainly enjoy this collection.

Elizabeth Bowen is one of the best writers I've read - either for fun, or in English courses. Her stories are complex and sometimes really strange and interesting, with an understated but absorbing style.
elizabeth bowen's stories are well crafted. reading them (for me... i was born in 1974) is like peeking into the drawing room of a time long gone and now crystallised on the page. i gave the book 4 stars instead of five, because while some of the stories are real gems, others fell flat to me. this was my first experience with her work, and 760 odd pages of short stories was a lot of stories!
i would recommend, unless you just want to read a few stories at a time, (the book is broken up into decades and then pre and post war sections)or you are already a huge fan, to start out with a smaller collection of her work. then again, why not pay a few extra dollars and get them all at once?
i escpecially recommend the stories of the twenties and thirties, they really are delightful... the ghosts and murderessess inhabiting some of them are intriguing, there's a flavour to her work you simply don't find in newer fiction. reading her work was like entering another time zone, quite interesting stuff!
