Anyone who so much as opens this collection will be delighted to insist that the authors escape is the readers good fortune.Including the stories originally published in the separate volumes May We Borrow Your Husband?, A Sense of Reality, and Twenty-One Stories, Collected Stories also prints for the first time in book form three other stories, The Blessing, Church Militant, and Dear Dr. Falkenheim. Mr. Greenes own favorites are four: I believe I have never written anything better than The Destructors, A Chance for Mr. Lever, Under the Garden, Cheap in August. Any reader will be free to concur or make his own choice. In any case he is likely to take respectful issue with Mr. Greenes statement that he is a novelist who has happened to write short stories and insist that he is the complete master of both forms.
