English Climate:
Wartime Stories
SYLVIA TOWNSEND WARNER
Of these 22 stories, some were reprinted in two volumes in the 1940s, and one or two have appeared in anthologies; but most Persephone readers will not have read any of them before and will find them something
of a revelation. ‘They show a writer seeking to understand what life was like in Britain at war. She worked quickly, without the haze of nostalgia... reflecting the texture of what was happening at that moment in time.’
