9780349106618: Going Into A Dark House

Flawlessly written, with dialogue so angular and sparky, and description - of landscapes and food - so lovely and hard edged, that they are a revelation of the extraordinary effects ordinary language can achieve. (DAILY TELEGRAPH)The dialogue is flawless. Her grasp of characters and their evolution is enviable. In this collection of short stories she is at her finest. Sharply observed, wonderfully told tales. (YORKSHIRE POST)Pure delight... One perfect story after another. (SUNDAY TELEGRAPH)Jane Gardam's stories are as good as ever. (SPECTATOR) Molly Fielding's mother had been a terrible woman...' A terrible woman indeed. One need only to look at the old sepia photograph to see a vision of nastiness. The look of cunning, the self-satisfied smile, the aura of hauteur as she watches the little Italian photographer go about his business. They say the camera never lies, but maybe this one did... 'Going into the Dark House', the title story of Jane Gardam's passionate new collection, brilliantly captures the subtly subversive qualities of her art. Quietly mesmeric and quite beautifully written, these ten stories are a delight.

Reseña del editor:

Molly Fielding's mother had been a terrible woman...'

A terrible woman indeed. One need only to look at the old sepia photograph to see a vision of nastiness. The look of cunning, the self-satisfied smile, the aura of hauteur as she watches the little Italian photographer go about his business. They say the camera never lies, but maybe this one did...

'Going into the Dark House', the title story of Jane Gardam's passionate new collection, brilliantly captures the subtly subversive qualities of her art. Quietly mesmeric and quite beautifully written, these ten stories are a delight.
