The Glad Eye

And Other Stories
A collection of stories by

Stan Barstow's short stories recall Lawrence's; like his, have what is so rare in a successful writer a kind of primary vision, a feeling for the characters, the milieux, he originally knew and might (through success) have grown away from. His people are mostly working or lower-middle class, unsophisticated in outlook, ordinary and untrendy, but explosively alive; and it is this aliveness that, like Lawrence, he harnesses.. . He speaks for urban provincial life with piercing vividness; for a particular outlook and morality that few other writers touch, let alone understand and feel for, today. -Isabel Quigly, Financial Times
