If you are a senior student or a staff member looking for an absolute treat, then Rose Tremain’s short stories are for you. The stories in this book are elegant, original and quirky. To read Tremain is to be in the company of a spellbinding practitioner of the genre.
She is extraordinarily versatile in this collection, taking us with ease from Regency London to a modern hospital room. Her characters are briefly sketched, yet well revealed. There is a rare subtlety about her writing and an element of surprise in every story – things never turn out quite as the reader expects. A woman lets herself into the wrong apartment – what does this tell us about her state of mind? Why does a laundress make a model of a heart out of wax? I’m not telling - but Rose Tremain will!
