'The Persephone Book of Short Stories is worth choosing just for Shirley Jackson’s ‘The Lottery’, or for Sylvia Townsend Warner’s ‘A View of Exmoor’, or Betty Miller’s ‘The Exile’, or – I could go on, all my favourite women authors are here. It seems greedy to pick a book so full of treasures, and it is also an illuminating path through the Twentieth Century.'
