BEST OF DON MARQUIS

This is just what the title indicates, -- a collection of short stories, poetry -- humorous and serious-, extracts from The Lives and Times of Arcky and Mekitabel, The Old Soak, The Almost Perfect State, and a varied assortment of prefaces, etc. One meets again the inimitable Mr. Tim O'Hara, Clem Hawley, Hermione. One realizes anew the versatility and the brilliance of Don Marquis, a modern Mark Twain. He is a better story teller than one realizes from scattered casual reading; and perhaps a less good poet. But anyhow, he is fun to read.
