Description

A collection of short stories by the infamously witty Jazz Age writer and Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Edna Ferber, including Buttered Side Down, Cheerful – By Request, Half Portions, and Gigolo.

This volume features many of Edna Ferber’s best works of fiction. The Algonquin Round Table writer is known for her masterful ability to capture quiet everyday lives and present insightful philosophies. Many of her characters are strong, wilful women who have the remarkable capacity to exceed expectations as single mothers and businesswomen.

The stories in this book are sad, enlightening, comedic, and surprisingly modern. The Collected Short Stories of Edna Ferber explores life before, during, and after the First World War, taking the reader through the quiet countryside of North America and into the States’ bustling cities.

This collection features much-loved stories, including:

    – ‘The Kitchen Side of the Door’
    – ‘The Leading Lady’
    – ‘Cheerful by Request’
    – ‘The Woman Who Tried to Be Good’
    – ‘The Maternal Feminine’
    – ‘One Hundred Per Cent’
    – ‘Gigolo’
    – ‘The Sudden Sixties’

First published between 1911 and 1922, this volume is now in a brand new edition, complete with an introduction by Rogers Dickinson. The Collected Short Stories of Edna Ferber would make the perfect gift for fans of the early feminist writer.
