The short story is often viewed as an inferior relation to the Novel. But it is an art in itself. To take a story and distil its essence into fewer pages while keeping character and plot rounded and driven is not an easy task. Many try and many fail. In this series we look at short stories from many of our most accomplished writers. Miniature masterpieces with a lot to say. In this volume we examine some of the short stories of Kate Chopin. Katherine O'Flaherty, far better known as Kate Chopin, is widely considered to be one of our greatest novelists excelling especially with her many short stories. Born in Louisiana her Creole, Cajun, Irish and French background would help to provide a rich source of ideas for her literary works. Regarded as one of the foremost exponents of feminist writers her stories not only give women a voice but look upon society from a female viewpoint and usually with an unexpected twist. Many of these stories are also available as an audiobook from our sister company Word Of Mouth.

The full volume can be purchased from iTunes, Amazon and other digital stores. Among the readers are Richard Mitchley, Eve Karpf and Ghizela Rowe.
