The best American humorous short stories by Alexander Jessup( )

2 editions published in 1920 in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although every literary tradition has its own rich vein of humor writing, there's something about American humor that sets it apart from the pack in terms of accessibility and lack of pretension. This volume includes writings from such luminaries of the genre as Mark Twain, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Edgar Allen Poe, and the brevity of most of the collected pieces makes it easy to take a short reading break whenever you could use a good laugh
The life and opinions of Tristram Shandy, gentleman by Laurence Sterne( Book )

1 edition published in 1925 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Doomed to become the 'sport of fortune' by an interruption at the crucial moment of conception, Tristram Shandy's life lurches from one mishap to another: his nose crushed by the doctor's forceps during birth, christened with the worng name, an unfortunate incident involving a slamming sash window. Though everything occurs between parlor and garden, Tristram's excitable father, bewildered mother, and Uncle Toby provide ample opportunity for the digressions and madcap events that structure this seminal novel

1 edition published in 1927 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among other things, Jeffers has called The women at Point Sur a study in the origin of religions
Men, women and boats by Stephen Crane( Book )

4 editions published between 1921 and 2010 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of short stories contains great works from Crane, including "The Open Boat," "The Desertion," "An Episode of War" and "The Pace of Youth." This edition features a famous introduction by editor Vincent Starrett, who compliments Stephen Crane's now-characteristic realist approach by saying that the author keeps "down the tone where another writer might have attempted 'fine writing' and have been lost."
The crystal cup by Gertrude Franklin Horn Atherton( Book )

2 editions published in 1925 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gabrielle de Bergerac by Henry James( Book )

2 editions published in 1918 in English and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There was every good reason why her dawning consciousness of M. de Treuil's attentions--although these were little more than projected as yet--should have produced a serious tremor in her heart. It was not that she was aught of a coquette; I honestly believe that there was no latent coquetry in her nature. At all events, whatever she might have become after knowing M. de Treuil, she was no coquette to speak of in her ignorance. Her ignorance of men, in truth, was great. For the Vicomte himself, she had as yet known him only distantly, formally, as a gentleman of rank and fashion; and for others of his quality, she had seen but a small number, and not seen them intimately.-publisher description

His account is a thoroughly realized document, a comprehensive understanding and treatment of every aspect of the life of the nomadic Arabs
