Book: Showing the Flag

Author: Jane Gardam

Details: (c) 1983-1989 Jane Gardam; Pub Sphere Books Ltd (Abacus) 1990; ISBN 0-349-10116-7

Verdict: Showing the flag has some accomplished stories but is probably one for the hardcore fans.

Reasons for reading it: I love Jane Gardam, even though I generally don't bother with collections of short stories.

How it came into my hands: A charity shop in Willesden sucked me in when I was on the way home from visiting NZ and worried that I wasn't carrying quite enough books to last the journey home.
