A Day Saved: And Other Modern Stories
Cambridge University Press, Oct 4, 1979 - Foreign Language Study - 144 pages
How does a man become successful although unable to read or write? How does a woman get her final revenge on her husband? What happens when a man invites friends to a party at which he himself doesn't appear, but watches from a distance? What happens to a boy who feels fated to be a genius? These are some of the questions dealt with in the ten stories in this collection. The stories, by important modern authors, have been specially selected for advanced students of English. They are not simplified, but vocabulary explanations and notes are provided in order to help comprehension.
