When I agreed to put my personal anthology together, I was planning to go the Desert Island Discs route. However, when I started to think about the short stories I read when I was younger, they formed a fairly stereotypical list of mostly great white males. And that couldn’t be further from what I read or who I am now. Here instead is a list of twelve stories by women writers that I love this very instant. Some I’ve lived with for years, some I’ve read very recently. What they have in common is these are stories by and about women and their experiences; what I noticed as I was writing the commentaries was how many of these women are unnamed.
