Humour, A Short Story Collection. The British, it is often said, have a stiff upper lip and a dry sense of humour. Its true, we usually do and in the case of this perfect compendium of short stories we absolutely do. Listen to our Scottish raconteur JM Barrie and English wits, Jerome K Jerome and Edward Lear for perfect proof of that. But humour is many things and from many places so we also feature Mark Twain, our very talented American friend to complete this rather witty and clever volume of short stories. Our readers include Richard Mitchley and James Taylor.
