After the publication of Satan in the Suburbs, his first book of short stories, Russell quipped: I have devoted the first eighty years of my life to philosophy, and propose to devote the next eighty years to another branch of fiction . Also included here, for the first time, is the novella The Perplexities of John Forstice, along with Russells intimate anecdotes and the fables created for the amusement of his own children. With the elegance and lucidity of style that won him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950, this volumes gives a sparkling demonstration of Russells humanity, his sense of fun, and his delighted perception of absurdity.
