Aldous Huxley's stature as one of the giants of modern English prose and of social commentary in our time is confirmed in this gathering of his distinguished stories into a single volume. Twenty-one pieces are here, including The Gioconda Smile, Little Mexican, Young Archimedes, and Chawdron. Together they offer a complete view of Huxley's work in the genre, in which he established himself as an acknowledged master.

Collected Short Stories Reviews

Twenty-one distinguished stories, confirming Huxley's stature as one of the giants of modern English prose and of social commentary in our time. A very good book. -- V. S. Pritchett
These stories ... reveal in snatches the real nature of his genius, which is essentially discursive, argumentative, analytical, and omnivorous.... [He is] always stimulating because of the sharp inquiring intellect at work, moving with equal liveliness to pinpoint an absurdity of character, as in `Chawdron,' or to feast on the pleasure of Italian life and painting. * Manchester Guardian *
A great pleasure to read. * Times Literary Supplement *
