I have not read any Pirandello before but I found these intriguing little stories an excellent introduction. They all seem to be about individuals' subjective perceptions of each other and how that can change. I particularly liked "With other eyes" and "A Voice".
I bought the Kindle edition - it was fine, active table of contents and all.

This is an excellent collection of short stories which includes A Character's Tragedy and what I regard as one of the greatest short stories ever written Mrs Frola and Mr Ponza, her son-in-law.
They all deal with the mdness and absurdity of everyday life and the relativity of truth, in a simple, expressive way. @where is the illusio, where isthe reality@ is a common phrase used and reading these stories you soon agree. These stories are highly recommended and I assure you that after this, you will lokk upon all fiction very differently
