Summary

Lost Girls explores the experiences of women and girls as they grieve, find love, face uncertainty, take a stand, find their future, and say goodbye to the past. A young woman creates a ritual to celebrate the life of a kidnapped girl, an unmarried woman wanders into a breast feeder’s support group and stays, a grieving mother finds solace in an unlikely place, a young girl discovers more than she bargained for when she spies on her neighbors. Though they may seem lost, each finds their center as they confront the challenges and expectations of womanhood.

    The best-selling author of Harm Done and A Sight for Sore Eyes, Ruth Rendell has written dozens of gripping works under her own name and as Barbara Vine. She has received three Edgar Awards from the Mystery Writers of America and four Dagger Awards from England's Crime Writers Association. How frightening can a book be? Ambrose Ribbon, self-appointed editor and grammar police, is about to find out. He has spent years pointing out mistakes to writers and their publishers. So when he picks up the latest supernatural thriller from a best-selling author, its typos and lapses of logic are no surprise. Its story, however, slyly begins to poison Ribbon's life. Piranha to Scurfy is just the first story in this collection of nine gems from the grand mistress of suspense. Jenny Sterlin's finely crafted narration highlights the richness of each character and the subtle psychological shifts.

    Twenty-eight short stories by the Katherine Mansfield Prize–winning author: “a most impressive collection, a work of genuine imagination” (Observer, UK).   Elspeth Davie is one of Scotland’s finest and most unjustly overlooked short-story writers. Her prose style is as clear and occasionally unnerving as that of Muriel Spark, yet her work reveals a gentler and more compassionate, but no less penetrating eye for the beauty and the strangeness of the human condition.   In The Man Who Wanted to Smell Books and Other Stories, readers will discover Davie’s wry humor, her ear for the cadences of daily life, and her innate understanding of the depths and absurdities hidden just beneath the surface. With an introduction by Giles Gordon, this wide-ranging collection of the very best of Davie’s short fiction offers an important reassessment of a wonderful writer.  "Mrs. Davie commands a beautifully clear prose style that she can intensify when necessary to touch the hem of poetry." —Edinburgh Evening News

    This collection of tales transports the reader to a time when staircases creaked in old manor houses, and a candle could be blown out by a gust of wind—or by a passing ghost.
