As well as being the author of the greatest of all children's plays, Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie also wrote sophisticated social comedy and political satire. The Admirable Crichton and What Every Woman Knows are shrewd and entertaining contribution to the politics of class and gender, while Mary Rose is one of the best ghost stories written for the stage.

A lovely new edition of the famous story - written after the play (which is now appearing on Broadway). The story is carried beyond the action of the play as Mrs. Darling is disposed of in a sentence, Wendy grows up, marries and has a daughter who takes care of Peter's spring house cleaning now that Wendy has become caught up in the tragic earth-bound disenchantment of adulthood. And Wendy's daughter, too, grows up and has a daughter who visits Peter in Neverland - "and thus it will go on, so long as children are gay and innocent and heartless". (Kirkus Reviews)
