Summary

Faber Stories, a landmark series of individual volumes, presents masters of the short story form at work in a range of genres and styles.

Thinking Betty was in the bath Graham was watching a late-night programme on Channel 4 called

Bringing together past, present and future in our ninetieth year, Faber Stories is a celebratory compendium of collectable work.
