An out-of-print collection of good short stories. ( )
  dasam | Jun 21, 2018 |
Such an odd assortment of stories. How can an editor select Benet's "Johnny Pye and the Fool Killer", which alerts us to pompous & pretentious "fools", and also "My Revelations as a Spy" "Exactly $8000 Exactly" or "Sun Dodgers" in which such pretentiousness is the standard? What else should I have expected from the editor of Saturday Evening Post? His introductions are little more than patting himself on the back for selecting such gems. It's easy to see why some authors have faded into oblivion.
Barrett's "Lilies of the Field", Gallico's "The Snow Goose", & Godden's "Mooltiki" I've read & enjoyed previously. PG Wodehouse & Agatha Christie are always enjoyable
I think I'll slice out the few good stories that aren't easily available as separate volumes. The rest of the book isn't even worth passing on. ( )
