Every Short Story
The five published collections of short stories by the Scottish writer and artist Alasdair Gray (b.1934) – Unlikely Stories Mostly, Lean Tales, Glaswegians, Ten Tales Tall and True, and The Ends of Our Tethers – are joined here by 16 new stories, Tales Droll and Plausible, drawings by Gray and his ‘Endnotes’, telling ‘more about my life as a fiction writer than I first intended’.
Flappers and Philosophers
Published in 1920 following the success of the novel This Side of Paradise, Fitzgerald's first collection of short stories includes many of his finest. 'The Offshore Pirate', 'Bernice Bobs Her Hair', 'The Ice Palace' and 'Benediction' present his archetypal Jazz Age heroines, the beautiful and wilful young women who became a hallmark of his fiction. Part of the Cambridge Edition series, this volume includes notes and details of the stories' composition and publication history.
