I dare say, a surprisingly interesting collection of short stories. I have only read volume II but given the positive reading experience I've managed to extract from this collection thus far, I think I may try my hand at the first sometime in the future.

Volume II of a 2-Volume anthology. I have read this and its companion volume many times over the years; this anthology was purchased new by my mother in 1956 and was one of the first "adult" books I dipped into as I expanded my childhood reading horizons. I still have these original books, and my whole family, adults & teens, still re-reads and enjoys them. And yes, I remember most, if not all, of the selections with deep fondness!

Looking at this collection 56 years after publication, in 20...more

This was Vol II in the series. It's a good way to get acquainted with a few writers from the early 20th Century. I must admit I skimmed a few of the stories, although overall it was worth the read.
