POST STORIES: 1949 by The Saturday evening Post


Email this review


The pink of popular perfection in the annual which selects some twenty out of the two hundred which appeared in last year's issues, reflects a variety and catholicity of tastes in these stories of fathers and sons, husbands and wives, some sports, comedy, fantasy- and one ghost. Of the names which have recognition value are William Saroyan, Gerald Kersh, John Vandercook, Paul Horgan, Frank O'Rourke, Agnes Sligh Turnbull- and although there may be little for longevity, there's more than enough for present pleasure. Of particular merit are Saroyan's An Ornery Kind Of kid and Paul Horgan's moving Daybreak.
