London: Michael Joseph, 1962; Boston, Toronto: Little, Brown and Company,( an Atlantic Monthly Press Book), 1962. Two comic stories contrast sharply with the atmospheric title story, a complex psychological tale ("The Ring of Truth") and the bleak "Quiet Girl." The Times Literary Supplement says "Mr. Bates for once sadly disappoints. Not one of these five novellas will stand up to close scrutiny."
