The book and stories are split into three time frames, from several of his books, which includes both novellas and most of his short stories. The time frames are: 1920 - 1922, 1926 – 1935 and 1937 – 1940, so between the wars if you like, covering such historical events as:
The Jazz Age
The Industrial Revolution &
The Great Depression
I have read four of the longer stories thus far - all immensely interesting and perfectly put together. It remains on my coffee table to pick up a will. It is just perfect if you have an hour to kill and don’t want to waste it! A perfect book should you like to read for an hour or so before nodding off to get your beauty sleep. I am going to enjoy this book for a long while yet.
The introduction is helpful. I am looking forward to winter evenings of reading these stories and getting lost in the world of Flappers and Philosophers.
Just glancing through this book, delectable mouth-watering imagery jumps out from the pages. It's about the writing which is beautiful.

Well crafted, amusing short stories let down by the poor quality of the transcribing for e-readers making the text almost unreadable in places . I have never seen so many typos.Published 5 months ago by mags
