Mansfield's family memoirs were collected in Bliss (1920). This edition also contains Prelude, The Daughters of the Late Colonel, Miss Brill, The Garden Party and other great stories.

Dubliners by James Joyce
One of the most influential and innovative writers of the 20th century, James Joyce was the author of the short story collection Dubliners (1914) and the novels A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916), Ulysses (1922), and Finnegans Wake (1939). His collections of poetry include Chamber Music (1907) and Pomes Penyeach (1927). Joyce was born in a suburb of Dublin. Dubliners is a collection of 15 stories about Irish middle class life in and around Dublin in the early years of the 20th century. The stories were written over a three-year period (1904–07). Joyce finished the final story, The Dead, in spring of 1907. The period during which Dubliners is set follows the brutal so-called Potato Famine of the late 1840s — for which many Irish held the British responsible. Good quality paper.

LEO TOLSTOY- Selected Stories
Leo Tolstoy — a genius whose greatness has been obscured from us rather than enhanced by his duality; a realist who strove to demolish the mysticism of Christianity, and became himself a mystic in the contemplation of nature. The derivation of Tolstoy's fiction from the classical school of Russian realism begun by Pushkin can hardly be doubted. Unlike Dostoevsky, who creates a world of his own in the image of the real world, Tolstoy accepts the real world, and his picture of it is fresh and interesting because he sees so much more of it than his readers, but its commonplaces, observed through the prism of his imagination, take on new meaning. That is, he is able to perceive genuine poetry in the average which so often embodies the reality of man's dreams and hopes. In this volume we present a selection of long and short stories by Leo Tolstoy. All stories are complete & unabridged. Paperback: 384 pages Language: English ISBN-13: 9788176060509 Package Dimensions: 21 x 14 x 2.4 cm Price Rs 180. Special offer: Rs 144

OSCAR WILDE-COMPLETE STORIES (including The Picture of Dorian Gray)
Somehow or other I will be famous, and if not famous, I will be notorious', declared Oscar Wilde. He proved to be both. Oscar Wilde was a genius and he transformed his talent into his stories, plays and poems. The world in which Oscar Wilde lived was riddled with hypocrisy and he exposed it in his writings. His only novel, "The Picture of Dorian Gray' was published in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890 and provoked a storm of protest from the Victorian society. 'It is a tale spawned from the leprous literature of the French decadents - a poisoned book, the atmosphere of which is heavy with mephitic odours of moral and spiritual putrefaction', wrote the critic from the Daily Chronicle. Oscar Wilde wrote a preface, which appeared separately in the Fortnightly Review in March 1891. It contains the famous passage : 'Books are well written, or badly written. That is all'. This volume contains Oscar Wilde's only novel, 'The Picture of Dorian Gray' and all other stories. All stories are complete & unabridged.

SAKI- The Complete Short Stories
Saki (Hector Hugh Munro) is best known for his witty, sometimes whimsical, often cynical and bizarre short stories. His best tales are often more macabre than Kipling's. In his early stories, Saki often portrayed eccentric characters, familiar from Oscar Wilde's plays. Saki's most frequently anthologized short stories are Tobermory', 'Sredni Vastar', 'The Unrest Cure' etc. He was a misogynist, anti-semite, and reactionary, who also did not take himself too serious. His stories, 'true enough to be interesting and not true enough to be tiresome', were considered ideal reading for schoolboys. However, Saki did not have any interest in safeguarding the Edwardian way of life. In this volume, we present a complete collection of his short stories. All stories are complete & unabridged.
