The three novels in this volume all display Penelope Fitzgerald’s characteristic wit, intellectual breadth and narrative brilliance.

The Bookshop is a contemporary comedy of manners, set in a provincial town. The Gate of Angels is a historical novel set in 1912 at a fictional Cambridge college. The Blue Flower traces the dramatic early years of the young German who was to become the great romantic poet and philosopher Novalis.
