':Delightful. . .The drama unfolds with wonderful humor.':
--The New York Times
':A MOST APPEALING BOOK. . . Godwin invites the reader into her mind, into the mysterious process through which fiction is created.':
--The Washington Post Book World
As a novelist, Gail Godwin has claimed her rightful place in the pantheon of popular American literature. Her novels and short stories speak to women and men about their most intense relationships and heartfelt feelings.
In this collection of five short stories and a novella, Ms. Godwin is at her best. In the title novella, ':Mr. Bedford,': a young would-be writer spends time in England under the strange and watchful eye of a rather unusual elderly couple: in ':Amanuensis,': a charming college student cares for a famous but blocked novelist, with unpredictable results: and in ':The Angry Year,': a rebellious student is drawn to two different kinds of men until she discovers what she has been running to and from.
Witty, insightful, and a pleasure to read, Mr. Bedford and the Muses will turn every reader into a fan of Gail Godwin.
--Los Angeles Times
':A SUBTLE WORK OF ALMOST CRYSTALLINE CLARITY. . . Godwin excels at portraying complex relationships.':
':Godwin, who has never been less than brilliant, is here passionate as well.':
