His precisely observed depictions of Helsingfors life in the early decades of the twentieth century, his acute sense of irony and delicately drawn characters place him firmly among the foremost exponents of the European short story." "This anthology brings together stories from the different stages of Schildt's career for the first time in English. His early writing depicts the decadence and heady social whirl of upper-class Helsingfors in the years preceding the Finnish Civil War of 1918. 'The Weaker One', regarded by many to be Schildt's masterpiece, is a particularly sharply drawn story of adultery and deception."--BOOK JACKET." ;
