Comments

Sharp copy of this beloved anthology of short fiction, selected and introduced by Maugham, with contributions by Hawthorne, Poe, Flaubert, Hardy, Wilde, Conrad, Conan Doyle, Kipling, Tolstoy, Chekov, Joyce, Hemingway, Fitzgerald, Faulkner, Forster, Wodehouse, and others. An elusive volume, with no equivalent published in the UK. The book enjoyed a resurgence in popularity earlier this year, when actor John Lithgow incorporated readings from it in his Broadway show Stories by Heart. Stott C19.
