Worth reading to know masters of the world
on 21 January 2011
Whoever interested in world literature; specifically in short stories, I should say it's worth reading this small collection. You can get Melville, Maupassant, Tolstoy, Kipling, Chekhov, Rilke, Mann, Lawrence, Joyce, Pirandello, Kafka, Hemingway, Achebe, Updike & more here. World is big enough to hold in this small edition. Still covered UK, USA, France, Russia, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Czechoslovakia, Nigeria & Argentina. Advanced readers may want even more but good for who are new or after classics. These stories are considered to be all time GREAT from all over the world.
I don't like the line spaces though. Too clumsy for me! But well printed! Nicely Designed! Well Binding!
