The Other Garden and Collected Stories Summary


The Other Garden and Collected Stories by Francis Wyndham

The stories and classic novel collected here are the work of one of the most subtle and observant writers of our time. Drawing on haunting encounters, solitary lives, hours spent in longing, and the blossoming of unlikely friendships, Wyndham's writing is full of gestures that celebrate the day-to-day while at the same time reaching out for a more profound engagement, a larger truth. Just over the horizon is the War, its progression touching the lives of women left behind, of young men awaiting call-up, and of those people who have simply been passed by, left to spend their days in their own familiar worlds; all evoked with grace, wit, and luminous elegy.

`The Other Garden, so swiftly paced, is a gem' TLS

`A singular, particular, gentle, biting, vastly entertaining, original writer' Harper's Bazaar
