KIRKUS REVIEW

A generous selection from previously published volumes of short stories, dating from 1921, these revive the tales of a writer who is known for his imaginative turns, his poetry in prose, and his fanciful fabrications. There is a variety in his themes, a lilt to his conversations, and a seeming artlessness that is belied by his able and vivid narration. From Adam and Eve and Pinch Me, The Black Dog, and others, these serve to introduce again a story teller of the best tradition, whose tales maintain their appeal in spite of the years.
