Aldous Hucley is a master of the short story. Its form and requirements provide a perfect vehicle for his iconoclastic temperament, his use of satire and irony, his deep sense of tragedy. From that subtle study of a suspected murderer, The gioconda smile, to the biting derision of social and artistic petensions in The Tillotson banquet, each story in this collection possesses a unique and sparkling vitality.
