From stories of travel, suspense, the macabre, wickedness and adventure, collected from different periods and places all over the world, the author now shifts his focus to an anthology that brings together stories that restore faith in the sheer goodness of human nature. Symbolizing the healing, therapeutic and rejuvenating effect that literature can have, these are stories that can be returned to again and again, over the years, bringing with them the warmth, hope and joie de vivre that is so important in everyday life.
