This book addresses a critically neglected genre used by women writers from Gaskell to Woolf to complicate Victorian and modernist notions of gender and social space. Their innovative short stories ask Britons to reconsider where women could live, how they could be identified, and whether they could be contained.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Kate Krueger's British Women Writers and the Short Story addresses women writers' use of social space in two key ways: the social space of the short story itself, which Krueger reads as an apt political space for women writers; and physical spaces, ranging from drawing rooms to city streets to colonial outposts. ... Throughout, Krueger offers detailed readings that are attentive to each text's periodical print context, and this is a real strength of the volume." (Sigrid Anderson Cordell, Sharp News, Vol. 24 (4), 2015)

"Wide-ranging, incisive and thoroughly readable, this will be essential reading for anyone interested in women writers' contribution to the short story tradition." - Ailsa Cox, Edgehill University, UK
