"In Lolly Willowes, Sylvia Townsend Warner tells of an aging spinster's struggle to break away from her controlling family--a classic story that she treats with cool feminist intelligence, while adding a dimension of the supernatural and strange. Warner is one of the outstanding and indispensable mavericks of twentieth-century literature, a writer to set beside Djuna Barnes and Jane Bowles, with a subversive genius that anticipates the fantastic flights of such contemporaries as Angela Carter and Jeanette Winterson"--Publisher description

"After a decade in one South Seas mission, a London bank-clerk-turned-minister sets his heart on serving a remote volcanic island. Fauna contains neither cannibals nor Christians, but its citizens, his superior warns, are like children--immoral children. Still, Mr. Timothy Fortune lights out for Fauna. Yet after three years, he has made only one convert, and his devotion to the boy may prove more sensual than sacred."--Page 4 of cover
