OBW Collections: From the Cradle to the Grave

Author: Clare West

Published: 01/07/1993

Level: Advanced (C1-C2) - Teenagers

Format: Paperback: 143 pages


Six volumes of themed short stories by well-known authors, both classic and modern.

The texts are not abridged or adapted in any way, but have been selected for content and language that will be understood by the advanced student.

  • Ideal for students who are beginning to read unadapted literature.
  • Short, thought-provoking introduction to each story.
  • Language notes on difficult vocabulary.
  • Discussion questions, language focus questions, and activities.


These stories explore the trials of life from youth to old age: the idealism of young people, the stresses of marriage, the anxieties of parenthood, and the loneliness and fears of older people. The wide variety of writing styles includes black humour, satire, and compassionate and realistic observation of the follies and foibles of humankind.
