1 edition published in 1927 in English and held by 570 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mosquitoes centers around a colorful assortment of passengers, out on a boating excursion from New Orleans. The rich and the aspiring, social butterflies and dissolute dilettantes are all easy game for Faulkner's barbed wit in this engaging high-spirited novel which offers a fascinating glimpse of Faulkner as a young artist."It approaches in the first half and reaches in the second half a brilliance that you can rightfully expect only in the writings of a few men. It is full of the fine kind of swift and lusty writing that comes from a healthy, fresh pen."--Lillian Hellman, New York Herald Tribune

The best American humorous short stories by Alexander Jessup( )

2 editions published in 1920 in English and held by 329 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 321 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 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Among other things, Jeffers has called The women at Point Sur a study in the origin of religions

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 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 243 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

TRAVELS IN ARABIA DESERTA has been recognized, almost since its publication in 1888, as one of the greatest travel books in the English language. Doughty spent almost two years traveling, going on pilgrimages, and living with various nomad tribes in northwestern Arabia, then a land almost completely unknown to Europeans and Americans. His account is a thoroughly realized document, a comprehensive understanding and treatment of every aspect of the life of the nomadic Arabs
