About the Author

Mavis Gallant was born in Montreal in 1922 and worked as a journalist at The Standard before moving to Europe in 1950 to devote herself to writing fiction. After travelling extensively she settled in Paris, where she still lives. Her many short story collections include The Other Paris, The End of the World, Home Truths, In Transit and The Moslem Wife. She is also the author of the novels Green Water, Green Sky and A Fairly Good Time. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature in London and a Companion of the Order of Canada. The Selected Stories of Mavis Gallant are published by Bloomsbury.


'Gallant is one of the great short-story writers of our time' Michael Ondaatje 'The irrefutable master of the short story in English, Mavis Gallant has, among her colleagues, many admirers but no peer. She is the standout. She is the standard-bearer. She is the standar Fran Lebowitz 'Mavis Gallant is a marvellously clear-headed observer, and a rare phrase-maker' Times Literary Supplement 'Gallant is funny, exacting and stern - in fact, an old-fashioned moralist, luminescent, subtle and lasting. Gallant's chronicles of internal and external exile are a fitting tribute to a diasporic century' Guardian
