    Novelist Victoria Hislop is a passionate ambassador for the short story. For her, it is the perfect fictional form: 'I relish the fact that I can read a complete work in a single sitting but that it might stay in my mind for months, even years later. And when I really want to indulge myself, I have read whole anthologies in a sitting. It's like eating an entire box of chocolates: very moreish, very easy.' Here, Hislop has collected 100 stories from her favourite women writers and presented them in one volume. Two Nobel laureates are included (Doris Lessing and Alice Munro) as are much-admired writers including Margaret Atwood, Angela Carter, Margaret Drabble, Penelope Fitzgerald, Ali Smith, M J Hyland, Anita Desai and Virginia Woolrf.
