THE BLUE CUP and Other Stories

Marked by the skilled craftsmanship of good magazine fiction, many of the stories in this collection are just as enjoyable on second reading as on introduction. Each story here offers a sound concept, a challenging idea or basic emotional appeal. Several Christmas stories deal with children; some have an O. Henry like twist to the climax. There's poignancy and humorous understanding and a fresh approach to social problems. All in all, a collection that will fill many a demand for worthwhile reading without the use of shock techniques.
