One of the nation's favourite novelists, Victoria Hislop, was at Faber today signing copies of The Story.

Picked by Stylist as a Must Read for September and celebrating the art of the short story, this is the complete anthology of short stories written by women for women.

Witty, heartbreaking, shocking, satirical: the short story can excite or sadden, entice or repulse. The one thing it can never be is dull. 

Over 500 copies signed in less than one hour - a Head of Zeus record.
