Publisher's Summary

Guy de Maupassant is widely regarded as the father of the modern short story. As his 13 volumes of short stories attest, he was a prolific writer of this form. He had a simple, efficient style of writing and, like Anton Chekhov, found inspiration for his stories in the daily lives of humans, which often reveal our darker nature. His years of service in the Franco-Prussian War provided him with rich material for his work.

11 Stories, All Good

Cate does a nice job of narration. It's interesting to hear a woman's voice compared to a man's in reading GdM. The stories are not listed, which I believe Aud should add in the introduction. Story 2., Mother Sauvage is magnificent. Story 1., The Colonels Idea, a story of how much French soldiers love French women.
