Children are bored on Sunday by Jean Stafford
London : Victor Gollancz, 1954. Inscribed by Jean Stafford. First British Edition. Hardcover. 252 pages ; 20 cm. 12/6 schilling dust jacket. Pages are unmarked and binding is firm.
The range of these stories is remarkable. Miss Stafford's approach to her subject varies widely —in turn satirical, tender, clinical, lyrical, savage, macabre. Her settings and her themes have an equal variety—Heidelberg, an Indian reservation, a hospital, and so on, But, whatever she may turn her hand to, she is always a writer of the most uncommon power and sensibility, and with an astonishingly keen visual sense that gives us every exterior detail sharply highlighted. These details, these nuances play as important a part in their context as do all the infinite gradations of experience in the building up of a total effect in Virginia Woolf s writing.
This is as exciting a collection of rt stories as any that has come way in all our years as publishers.
Miss Stafford needs no introduction to the British public. She once established her reputation re with the first of her three novels, I Boston Adventure," and lengthened it with the last, "The Catherine Wheel," which was published in 1952.
