The Complete Short Stories of A.A. Milne
A.A. Milne’s real passion lay beyond Winnie-the-Pooh, as this new prose collection reveals. Collected in full for the first time, including a number previously unpublished, here are his complete short stories and sketches for grownups. They are an epiphany.
These 50 stories show Milne to have been a brilliant comic sketch and short form writer. They paint memorable scenes, from a children’s birthday party, an accidental encounter with murder, and a case of blackmail – often with an unexpected twist. But they also deal in poignancy, from the girl who pulls the wool over her boyfriend’s eyes, to a first dance and first disappointment, or a family reunion and domestic dissonance.
Milne’s thought-provoking stories here will make you see his works for children in a whole new light.
