4* (out of 5*)

I found this little gem on Alibris whilst looking for a copy of Wide Sargasso Sea.

It’s a quick read as the collection only contains the short stories: Let Them Call It Jazz, Outside the Machine, and The Insect World. This is my first venture into the works of Jean Rhys and I am utterly blown away. I didn’t know what to expect but she masterfully draws you into the lives of the three protagonists and makes you feel the anxieties, paralysis and despair of the characters.
