this reader's digest anthology that you mention - does it also include kurt vonnegut's "who am i this time" and the secret life of walter mitty?
my parents had that old RD, i loved it growing up but with all the moves my parents made, i cant find a copy of that anymore. would you PLEASE share with me the other stories in that anthology? and the name of that anthology too please - anything that would help me search for a copy!

thanks very much!

date of publishing, anything at all :)

cathatfished: yes, it's the same one. Though I don't remember exactly, I think it was simply called "Best/Great Short Stories". I'll get you the exact name and date after checking the copy.

thanks, do let me know! :) i would love LOVE a copy!

Ramanand said...

Yes, it's a prized possession for me too.

The book is called "Great Short Stories".
1986 publication; published by RDI Print and Publishing Private Ltd., Orient House, Mangalore Street, Ballard Estate, Bombay - 38

There's no ISBN no.

There are 30+ stories, so it's a little hard to type out the names - but stories by Maugham, Dahl, Thurber, Saki, Forsyth, and Wilde, among others.

You can write to me (quatrainman at gmail) if you need anything more.

Ramanand said...
