    Irreverent and entertaining stories which Jameson describes as 'easy to pick up and more tantilising for one's bedside table than a novel'. This selection of Winifred Holtby's short stories is drawn from her two volumes, "Truth is not Sober" and "Pavements of Anderby", published two years after her death. The stories are irreverent and many are autobiographically based, focusing on the Yorkshire farming community.
