Collected Short Stories
(Robert Graves )
Beautifully varied and widely eclectic, these selections cover, among other topics, an heroic protest at prep school ("Treacle Tart"), a con artist who uses the art of escapology in real-life situations, and a man who claims the power to kill with his voice ("The Shout"). Most of the stories, including such improbable ones as "Kill Them! Kill Them!," "The Whitaker Negroes" and "A Toast to Ava Gardner" are, the author insists, true. Written between 1924 and 1962, each stands on its own; but together, as autobiography, this collection makes a fascinating companion to GOODBYE TO ALL THAT, Robert Graves' famous account of his life at Charterhouse School and as a young officer in WW I.
