Summary :

The twenty stories gathered here span a half-century of Sylvia Townsend Warner's remarkable career, and exemplify her prodigious imagination at its most brilliant and most bizarre. Whether set in London or in rural England, each displays the light wit and keen social observation that characterize her best writing. There are tales of romantic love and the mysteries of marriage; of artists who speak the truth even as they distort reality; of gardens and houses and very fine things and those who fancy themselves their owners. At the heart of the collection are five linked stories about an eccentric establishment, the Abbey Antique Galleries, and its singular proprietor, the urbane Mr. Edom. Some of the stories are comical, some hauntingly lyrical, but all are as bewitching as only vintage Warner can be.
