CARELESS WIDOW & OTHER STORIES, A

Synopsis

Set for the most part in London, Cornwall and the South Coast, the stories included in this collection are proof that one of the great masters of the short story is still, in his late eighties, at the height of his powers; and one of them, "Cocky Olly" - the story of two runaway children - is widely considered to be among the very best he has written.
