The Story: Love, Loss & the Lives of Women – Victoria Hislop

Witty, heartbreaking, shocking, satirical: the short story can excite or sadden, entice or repulse.  The one thing it can never be is dull.  Now Victoria Hislop, passionate ambassador for the art of the short story, has collected 100 stories from the very best women writers, bringing them all together in one volume.

Here are Man Booker Prize winners and Nobel Laureates, well-known feminists and famous wits, national treasures and rising stars.  Divided thematically into collections on love, loss and the lives of women, the reader will find a story for every mood, mind-set and moment in life.

Featuring an all star cast of authors including Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Angela Carter, Margaret Drabble, Penelope Fitzgerald, Miranda July, Doris Lessing, Katherine Mansfield, Alice Munro, Dorothy Parker and Virginia Woolf, The Story is the biggest and most beautiful collection of women’s short fiction in print today.
