Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From one of the great literary classics of the world — a carefully chosen selection of 20 stories told by ten young people who have retreated to the countryside to escape the plague raging in 14th-century Florence. Includes "The Pot of Basil," "Patient Griselda," and the bawdy "Putting the Devil Back in Hell."
