Abstract:

"When Edith Templeton's stories began appearing in The New Yorker in the late 1950s, she quickly became a favorite of the magazine's discerning readers. Her finely honed writing, honestly drawn heroines, and distinctive themes secured her reputation. The Dart's of Cupid collects seven of Templeton's stories for the first time and reintroduces one of the truly great writers of the twentieth century. In settings ranging from a decrepit Bohemian castle between the wars to London during World War II to the Italian Riviera in the 1990s, the heroines of these stories often find themselves confronting unfathomable passions and perplexing actions by others, but they seldom feel regret."--Publisher.
