Abstract
This article explores some of the political, but accessible and entertaining, short fiction written during the 1930s by women writers in Britain, which has been neglected both in work on the short story and by work on the period. It discusses as examples of the possibilities of this kind of writing some of the short fiction of Winifred Holtby, Sylvia Townsend Warner and Naomi Mitchison, with a particular focus on their uses of unreliable narration.
