In the Walpole manner, an excellent collection of short stories for the guest-room bedside table, for the convalescent, or for reading aloud. There is nothing of the modern cynicism; the stories seem somewhat dated—but after all that is often restful. One group might stand alone, Let the Bores Tremble, built on an entertaining idea of a business of ridding society of bores. For characteristic flavor, read The German, The Exile, The Train. Not an important addition to the Walpole shelf.
