About the Author

Guy de Maupassant (1850-1893) was a prolific French writer best remembered as a master of the short story and a father of the genre. He delighted in clever plotting and served as a model for later short story practitioners through favorites such as "The Necklace," "The Horla," "The False Gems," and "Useless Beauty." Maupassant wrote some 300 short stories, as well as six novels, three travel books, and one volume of verse.

For approximately $8, this 384 page book is a real bargain. DeMaupassant will be a nice addition to my permanent library. I hope his writings will inspire my two teens who are just starting to read the classics.

Leo Tolstoy & O. Henry, both, considered de Maupassant the greatest short story writer in the history of literature. I don't see any reason to doubt their assessment.
