Virago Modern Classics, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945)

* A unique literary event: the return of an important 'lost' writer for a new generation of readers, now joins the Virago Modern Classics

On their first publication, Isabel Bolton's novellas won high praise from such reviewers as Edmund Wilson and Diana Trilling (who in 1946 called her 'the most important new novelist in the English language to appear in years'). Highly poetic, evocative stories of city life, the characters in these novellas are mirrored by the complexities of New York itself. Out of print for many years, New York Mosaic, brings together the finest fiction from this unique and timeless writer.
