What a joy to spread before you six classic story collections, each by a master. Open The Bohemian Girl, by Willa Cather, and the piety, cruelty, and chaste, windswept beauty of the American prairie overcome you. Or pick up An Experiment in Misery, by Stephen Crane, and be carried off to sea in a lifeboat. Each of Harper Perennial's beautifully presented volumes (by Tolstoy, Melville, Wilde, and Dostoyevsky, with others on the way) also contains one story by a rising modern writer. Sated with genius, take one more delicious bite.
