Description

Angela Huth is one our most consistently enthralling novelists, with a career that spans such critically acclaimed works as LAND GIRLS, WIVES OF THE FISHERMEN and OF LOVE AND SLAUGHTER. But she is also a master of the short story, as this succulent retrospective spanning 25 years reveals. This new anthology contains the very best of Angela's three short story collections - MONDAY LUNCH IN FAIRYLAND, SUCH VISITORS and ANOTHER KIND OF CINDERELLA - together with two wonderful new pieces: 'Angels Bending Near the Earth', a tale of Christmas and competitive friends; and 'The Wife and a Half', about a woman bewitched by a conversation about Byron. These are vignettes and epiphanies that bear all the hallmarks of Angela's writing skills: her eye for description, her ear for dialogue, her understanding of the subtle intricacies of human relationships. In 'Men Friends', a funeral reveals the truth about an odd couple's relationship; in 'The Bull', a rampaging animal provides the impetus for a woman to change her life; and in 'Sudden Dancer', a husband's plan to surprise his wife ends up with him being surprised himself.
