1st ed.
An "abundantly rich collection" of short stories by the Man Booker Prize-winning author ( The New York Times Book Review ). In Pack of Cards , Penelope Lively shares moments in the everyday world that are not always open to observation, as she delves into the minutiae of her characters' lives. Whether she writes about a widow on a visit to Russia, a small boy's consignment to boarding school, or an agoraphobic housewife, Lively takes the reader behind a closed curtain, through the locked door, and into a world that seems at first mundane--then proves to be uniquely memorable. "Witty, profoundly civilized . . . This captivatingly intelligent collection confirms Lively's place as one of Britain's most imaginative and important contemporary writers." -- Library Journal
