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.
The Book of Imaginary Beings
Indulging in ‘out-of-the-way erudition’, Borges mined sources ancient and modern to compile this miscellany of 120 creatures of the imagination, from the A Bao A Qu that inhabits the first step of an Indian staircase to the living island of Zaratan. Translated by Norman Thomas di Giovanni in collaboration with Borges.
Love in a Cold Climate
Groomed for the perfect marriage by her ambitious mother, Polly Hampton is bored by the fashionable London season. All is not what it seems though in this classic romantic comedy, and the revelation of a long-held secret will shatter her mother’s dreams. Slightly off-mint and felt-tip mark on lower trimmed edge.
