Something Short and Sweet by H. E. Bates

Something Short and Sweet, H. E. Bates's sixth collection first published in 1937, demonstrates his mastery of character and form. Richard Church, writing in John O'London's Weekly, stated that this collection confirmed his belief that Bates "is an immortal...

Here is a creative artist whose technique in the art of the short story is comparable with that of the great masters in this form."

The title story explores the intricacies of the relationship between a forty-year-old evangelist and his twenty-year-old assistant. 'Cloudburst' and 'Spring Snow' are vignettes of human struggle in a rural context, similar to much of Bates's earlier work. 'Finger Wet, Finger Dry' and 'The Sow and Silas' continue Bates's success with the antics of Uncle Silas.

The Morning Post commented that "each story stands out individual and distinct...

In each the theme has been worked over, walked round, sifted, considered, a stance as viewpoint selected, the ultimate significance determined."
