Irwin Shaw was at his best in short stories. This collection includes almost everything he has written in the genre, in which he is among the best tellers in English, on a par with Somerset Maugham, better than Hemingway. Each of Shaw's stories is a perfectly constructed slice of life. My favourites are: "The Girls in their Summer Dresses", "A Year to Learn the Language" and "The Inhabitants of Venus" (appealing to skiers). So grab this collection before it disappears from the catalogue, as Shaw's novels have done.
