I love Rose Tremain s writing especially her wit and turn of phrase The Darkness of Wallis Simpson is a novel of short stories which I am not in the habit of reading I prefer large novels if they are good and hate it when they finish However this collection of short stories was cleverly written as usual but the stories were very dark unlike her Merival character as in Restoration abd its newer seuel which was everything witty entertaining and dark in places but not to be taken so seriously However I love that Rose can write so engageingly in any genre and I love her for it Her books ooze the story emotionally and picturesuely
