Overview

This collection of four stories, "I Stand Here Ironing," "Hey Sailor, what Ship?," "O Yes," and "Tell me a Riddle," had become an American classic. Since the title novella won the O. Henry Award in 1961, the stories have been anthologized over a hundred times, made into three films, translated into thirteen languages, and - most important - once read, they abide in the hearts of their readers.

"These stories have the lyric intensity of an Emily Dickinson poem and the scope of a Balzac novel." — from the judges' citation for the Rea Award for the Short Story
