by H.E. BatesH.E. Bates' stories can be variable in quality but hidden amongst the mediocre ones are some absolute gems. The Song of the Wren contains the beautiful and moving story The Man Who Loved Squirrels in which a lonely woodcutter is befriended by a possessive young woman, and The Dam a story of a young man on holiday who incites the rivalry of a mother and her daughter. The style of Bates' writing is a little dated now but no more than someone like Maugham, say, or Isherwood. These stories are still very poignant and worth taking the time to discover.
