    Luigi Pirandello, 1934 Nobel Prize for literature winner, is best known for his plays However these eleven short stories portraying life in southern Italian villages are truly gems My favorite is the intricate Mrs Frola and Mr Ponza, her Son in Law In this complicated short story, one of the two characters is insane, but neither the townspeople, nor the reader, can figure out which is true In the final lines, Pirandello states One thing is certain anyway that both of them manifest a marvelous, d [...]

    Like the other Pirandello on my list, I hardly gave this probable masterpiece my undivided attention Hence, this really ought to be on my to read shelf.

    Some of the stories were really sweet and nostalgic, others were sad, and there were a couple which were a bit boring I ve read better short stories collection, but this one wasn t bad either.
