The years 1930 to 1955 marked a high point in the fortunes of the English short story.
Reflecting some of the best writing of the period, this volume includes stories by such well-known authors as Virginia Woolf, C.
S. Forester, Evelyn Waugh, and Graham Green. Cleverly depicted characters, and evocative moods and atmospheres pervade these tales.
Comic tragic, and even fantastical, overall these nineteen English stories offer a highly humorous perspective on life.
