World's Most Popular Short Stories

  • Author: Maupassant, Anton Chekhov, O Henry, Saki

World’s Most Popular Short Stories is a collection of tales that are soothing, yet scintillating, motivational and magical, and a gentle mix of the common and the special. Handpicked stories by four master craftsmen – Guy de Maupassant, Anton Chekhov, O Henry and Saki – will not only give you a taste of their contemporary societies and cultures, but also take you on an adventure of a lifetime. Their extraordinary stories are a mixture of tragedy and humorous satire, irony and the macabre, in which the stupidities and hypocrisy of conventional society are viciously pilloried. You will meet the common folks who love to spend evenings in the company of girls, and you will also meet couples from humble origins working hard to repay a debt which was wrongly assumed in the first place. You can run into love seeking you in some stories, and destiny waiting to change the course of lives in others. The heady mix of humour, satire and drama makes these stories an essential cocktail of emotions.
