Publisher Comments:

Affairs, obsessions, ardors, fantasy, myth, legend and dream, fear, pity, and violence — this magnificent collection of stories illuminates all corners of the human experience.

Previously published in two volumes — Collected Short Stories and The Last Word and Other Stories — these forty-nine stories reveal Graham Greene in a range of contrasting moods, sometimes cynical and witty, sometimes searching and philosophical. Each one confirms V. S. Pritchett's statement that Greene is "a master of storytelling."
