These six short stories by the author of "The Prisoner of Zenda" and "The Dolly Dialogues," are all reasonably witty, ingenious, and agreeably satirical. Two of them are long enough to be called "novelettes," if one were inclined to be particular about small literary classifications, but not long enough to tax a reader's patience, which is more to the point. --The New York Times

Enjoyed reading the Wheel of Love.
It's really quite a circle and chase.
