Summary (From the publisher):

In addition to the celebrated title story, the pieces chosen for this collection by translator Stanley Appelbaum range in time from the earliest know tale, "Little Hut," a study of rural passions written in 1884, to "Mrs. Frola and Mr. Ponza, Her Son-in-Law," a quintessential Priandello story about the relativity of truth and the possibility of penetrating other people's minds. Published in 1917, it was the basis for Pirandello's first major play Right You Are If You Think You Are.
