Summary
This selection of 27 stories shows Maupassant at his comic, cruel, and brilliant best. In addition to the poignant title story, it includes one of the most famous tales ever written, 'The Necklace', and 'Le Horla', an account of a disintegrating personality that chillingly parallels the author's own decline into madness
