KIRKUS REVIEW

To the many who are rejecting much modern fiction because of its length and burdensome detail, the revival of interest in the short novel is a heartening symptom. Here is a collection which includes Young Joseph by Thomas Mann, Tolstoy's Father Sergius, Steinbeck's, The Short Reign of Pippin IV. Conrad's The Duel, and other selections often forgotten by authors whose larger works have been emphasized. A grand collection with a real purpose behind it.
