Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Considers the often overlooked side of World War II, offering twenty-seven stories by women writers that render a sensitive portrait of life on the home front and the struggles to keep homes, families, and relationships alive

From the Publisher:

ŒWish Me Luck as You Wave Me Goodbye¹ went the jaunty wartime song, and that was what the brave-faced women did as they bid their men farewell. This collection of short stories, written by women when war was a way of life, includes some of the finest British writers of that generation: Rosamond Lehmann, Elizabeth Bowen, Doris Lessing, Rose Macaulay, Stevie Smith, and Elizabeth Taylor. War has traditionally been seen as a masculine occupation, but these stories show how women were, in a sense, equal participants. They reveal hardship, isolation, and deprivation. By turn comical, stoical, compassionate, angry, and subversive, these intensely individual voices bring a human dimension to the momentous events that reverberated around them, and each opens a window on to a hidden landscape of war.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
