... a very smooth read ... Athill is clearly a writer of intelligence.
- Rover Arts
[Diana Athill's] collected fiction writing from the 1950s through the 1970s is a handsome garland on a long career...
I loved loved loved these short stories. They're like many-faceted gems, understated, deceptively simple and even off-hand, yet so filled with insights and real beauty.

These stories are small gems ... [Athill's] legion of admirers will be pleased.
