Stories within a story woven together in such a way that when you put it down you will know you've just read a great book. This is a short book. Hard to call it a novel but it's not quite a short story either. Regardless, don't miss it.

Ordering this edition will get you a cheesy print-on-demand volume, approximately 9"x12", resembling a grade-school workbook. For a reader with limited vision, its fairly large font is a possible advantage. My advice is to go for a better edition of this wonderful novella.
