This looks like a good collection of 19th and 20th century favorites, with varied tastes and moods taken into account. Any limited selection is of necessity arbitrary, but few can quarrel with a good one which includes such names as Gorky, De Maupassant, Balzac, Daudet, Dickens, Stevenson, Poe, Bret Harte, Mark Twain, Hemingway, Saki, Dorothy Parker, Wodehouse, Pirandello, Stefan Zweig, Bent, etc. ... This is an addition to the Tower Books, and introduces a new series of Fiction, following the popular success of Tower non-fiction. Good merchandise at popular price.
