The Monkey s Paw Book Description :

This early work by William Wymark Jacobs was originally published in 1902 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography. Jacobs worked as a clerk in the civil service before turning to writing in his late twenties, publishing his first short story in 1895. Most of Jacobs' work appeared before the onset of World War I, and although the majority of his output was humorous in tone, he is best-remembered now for his macabre tales, particularly those contained in his 1902 collection The Lady of the Barge, such as 'The Monkey's Paw' and 'The Toll House'....

Jacob s Room Book Description :

A Nonconformist Novel with No Central Character “Either we are men, or we are women. Either we are cold, or we are sentimental. Either we are young, or growing old. In any case life is but a procession of shadows, and God knows why it is that we embrace them so eagerly, and see them depart with such anguish, being shadows.” - Virginia Woolf, Jacob's Room Jacob’s Room is not your typical Victorian English novel. The fact that there is no real protagonist stands out the most. Jacob is not actually a character, only a collection of memories, feelings and sensations. His life is like a room seen through the eyes of other people. This Xist Classics edition has been professionally formatted for e-readers with a linked table of contents. This eBook al...
