"A group of visitors to the Salzburg Festival, brought together by chance, decides to mark time by telling tales. Their sketches, anecdotes, fantasies, legends, tragedies, jokes and parodies combine to make The Salzburg Tales.

These thoroughly modern stories invite comparison with Boccaccio's Decameron and Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. Dazzling in their richness and vitality, like the million drops of water that are the looking glasses of all our lives', The Salzburg Tales, Christina Stead's first book, is published here with a new introduction by Margaret Harris."
