An amusing collection of short stories. American authors include Twain, Frank Sillivan, James Thurber and many more. Looking for a cure for everyday blahs? Try The Best American Humorous Short Stories, a treasury of favorite American writers at their funniest. Characters who range from the conniving to the eccentric, the hopelessly out-of-touch, or the just plain silly make for plenty of laughs as they cope with situations both ordinary and extraordinary. Whether it's the oblivious gambling man in Mark Twain's "Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County," the skeptic whose eyes are dramatically opened in Edgar Allen Poe's "The Angel of the Odd," or any of the heroes and heroines of these eighteen tales of hi-jinks and hilarity, you'll be sure to get a strong dose of the very best medicine with this collection.
