Margaret Drabble (1939 ….)

Hassan’s Tower

Magaret Drabble has published fewer short stories than she has novels.  Hassan’s Tower in included in The Penguin Book of Modern Women’s Short Stories (Edited by Susan Hill), and was later part of her collection A Day in the Life of a Smiling Woman (2011).

I’ve seen Hassan’s Tower described a ‘honeymooner’s epiphany’, and a morality tale and there’s merit in both.
