KIRKUS REVIEW

Graceful, lively translations of 15 stories (seldom anthologized and less superficial than many of the better known tales) which revitalize Maupassant's clinical sentimentality. The inclusions represent a varied social spectrum, from ""The Vagrant"" to ""Mademoiselle Perle,"" and include fantasy (""At the Mountain Inn"") as well as slice-of-life realism (""My Uncle Jules""); ""The Necklace"" is mercifully excluded.
