In a century during which the role of women in society changed radically, their fictional heroines highlight women’s experience of life inside and outside the home through the decades in these rich, insightful and evocative stories.

Stories for Christmas and the Festive Season explores the joys and disappointments, pressures and preparations of this time of year from a female perspective.

Celebrate Christmas through the creative minds of a host of authors, including Beryl Bainbridge, Maeve Binchy, Richmal Crompton, Alice Munro and Elizabeth von Arnim. From the delightful consequences of decorating the tree by Stella Gibbons to a disorientating encounter at 35,000 feet on a Christmas Day flight by Muriel Spark, an amateur pantomime by Stella Margetson and a New Year’s resolution by Alice Childress, these stories are sure to fortify you over the Christmas period.

The stories are plucked from different decades of the twentieth century and penned by familiar as well as forgotten authors writing for both books and popular magazines.
