(4.6 stars; 4 reviews)

This collection consists of thirteen stories. The stories are set in the mythical town of Whilomville used by Stephen Crane for many of his best stories. They appeared in Harper's New Monthly Magazine between 1899 and 1900. The writing is crisp, the stories are poignant and funny (usually) and always tell us something about our quirky human nature. - Summary by Phil chenevert (4 hr 11 min)
