This collection of short stories reminds us of the bitter slyness of his wit and his sometimes furious and keen powers of observation. First published in 1890, this volume includes: . qThe Courting of Dinah Shadd, q which recalls the tragedies of Thomas Hardy . the war story qA Conference of the Powersq . the slyly humorous qAmong the Railway Folkq and qIn an Opium Factoryq . qCity of the Dreadful Night, q a traveler's account of Calcutta An excellent reintroduction to one of the finest writers in the English language, this will delight fans of 19th-century popular literature. British author and poet RUDYARD KIPLING (1865-1936) was born in colonial India, a locale that inspired his best-known works, The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and Gunga Din (1892). He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907.ghost Never woman was the worse for me whin I had married Dinah, Therea#39;s a time for all things, ana#39; I know how to kape all things in place a€” barrina#39; the dhrink, that kapes me in ray agt;place, wid no hope av comina#39; to be aught else.aquot; aquot;Begin at theanbsp;...
