This is a collection of five classic short stories that have a "happy ending." They are all love stories, but they are quite different from each other, ranging from humorous (Akin to Love) to heartwarming (The Other Man's Wife) to a bit bittersweet (Head and Shoulders). This is the second "taster flight" of classic short stories that I have published via my Annorlunda Books imprint. (The first was Missed Chances.) Once again, I really enjoyed reading the stories over and over as I prepared the book. If you haven't read any classic short stories in awhile, give this collection a try!
Head and Shoulders, by F. Scott Fitzgerald
