A collection of stories by

 
 
The definitive selection of short stories from one of our greatest living writers, curated by Penelope Lively herself

Wry, compassionate and glittering with wit, Penelope Lively's stories get beneath the everyday to the beating heart of human experience.

In intimate tales of growing up and growing old, chance encounters and life-long relationships, Lively explores with keen insight the ways that individuals can become tangled in history, and small acts ripple through the generations.

From new and never-before-published stories to forgotten treasures, Metamorphosis showcases the very best from a literary master.

'Lively has the gift, rare and wonderful, of being able to peel back the layers one by one and set them before us, translucent and gleaming' Sunday Telegraph

'A sublime storyteller . . . she has us riveted with curiosity as to what will happen next, yet also keeps us consistently aware of the nature of the illusion' Guardian

'You are in the hands of a master' Daily Mail
