Any additional comments?
The two stories I liked in this collection was Paul's case by Willa Cather and A Retrieved Reformation by O. Henry are deffinatly worth knowing, since their characters with stay with you long after you are done, and you find yourself wondering what came of them since.
But else, these stories are at best mediocre.
