Summary

This, arguably Sylvia Townsend Warner’s most luminous collection of stories, was first published in 1966 and includes ‘A Love Match’, hailed by the Los Angeles Times as ‘a supreme example of her technique.’ It is the tale of Celia and Justin Tizard, sister and war-scarred brother, whose uncommon closeness becomes the talk of a small English village.

‘Sylvia Townsend Warner was one of the most talented and well-respected British authors of the twentieth century. Today she is shamefully under-read.

It is wonderful to see so many of them being made available again by Faber Finds.’ Sarah Waters
