Featuring some of Larkin's earliest fictional works, written under the pseudonym 'Brunette Coleman,' including two novellas and a sequence of poems; Trouble at Willow Gables represents the only completed novel in this collection, and as in Trouble, most of Larkin's later explorations of genre and prose include the same youthful antics and female protagonists. The author's abandonment of fiction directly transitioned into his first mature works in verse, as this collection captures the foundational struggles that formed the historic poet.
