The Collected Short Stories (Norton Paperback Fiction) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jean Rhys was one of the twentieth century's foremost writers, a literary artist who made exqusite use of the raw material of her own often turbulent life to create fiction of memorable resonance and poignancy. Here for the first time in one volume are her complete stories.

Synopsis:

"Reading such stories as a group . . . can be overwhelming. Yet it is precisely this intense immersion in experience that is the essence of Rhys' art. The force of her stories lies in the fusion of elegant prose with an uncanny penetration of the darker reaches of the soul."--
