Susan and Friends is the essential companion to your Jane Shaw collection - or an ideal introduction to the work of this increasingly popular author. The book gathers together her published short stories, hitherto lost to sight in hard-to-find annuals, as well as unpublished stories from Jane Shaw's personal archives. Accompanying Jane Shaw's own words are critical essays on the books and their settings, a fascinating account by Ian Evans of the family friends who appear as dedicatees of his mother's books, and a full bibliography. Susan and Friends is edited by Alison Lindsay, who has spent several years researching Jane Shaw's life and writings. Fully illustrated.
