‘The Servants’ is a short story about an obnoxious woman for whom things go horribly wrong when she forgets that good staff are not easily replaced.
Through her attitudes and actions, the reader is positioned to dislike Madeline from the very moment they meet her. When things turn on her, the reader is left with a sense of smug satisfaction that takes the edge off the quite macabre conclusion to the story.
‘The Servants’ has been awarded a Silver Acorn.
