Winifred Holtby (1898 - 1935) was an English novelist, short story writer and journalist.
"Escape - Three and Sixpence" is a haunting short story which opens with a Yorkshire housewife putting her head into the gas oven to commit suicide to escape her unbearable life of drudgery. We are swept along with the thoughts and emotions which go through her mind... and the roller-coaster of emotions as events unfold.
