Description

In the years after the Second World War the BBC invited some of the leading British and Irish writers of short stories to read selected works of their own on the radio. For the first time this unrivalled archive of recordings is now being made available for wider distribution. This 3-CD set includes a wide range of stories - from the elegantly-turned miniatures of "Somerset Maugham" to the eerie supernatural tales of "Algernon Blackwood". Around a dozen writers will be featured in all, including Kingsley Amis, Edna O'Brien, A E Coppard, William Trevor and Lord Dunsany. This set offers a unique opportunity to hear some of the most highly-regarded masters of the craft in their own voices.
