Penelope Lively


Penelope Lively has been writing short stories for over forty years. METAMORPHOSIS is a selection from her three previous collections, with an introduction by the author in which she reflects on the way in which the stories themselves, as she made the selection, seemed to have their own narrative of changing style, of changing preoccupations about the times in which she has lived. At either end of the selection are two long new stories, not previously published – their length also a new departure.
