No Jacket. 223 pages illustrations 21 cm. ; ISBN: 0836931122; 9780836931129 LCCN: 75-94732 ; OCLC: 30548 ; LC: PZ3.H314; PR4762; Dewey: 823/.8 ; brown cloth ; no dustjacket ; Contents: Reluctance -- Why men don't marry -- A change of heart -- A repentant sinner -- 'Twixt will and will not -- Which shall it be? -- Marriage by compulsion -- All's well that ends well. ; "Now, concerning what follows, I have, since then, entertained some doubts whether I behaved in all respects discreetly. You will allow that the position was a difficult one, but it is, I admit, very possible that my wisest course would have been to make an apology and turn tail as quickly as I could. Well, I didn't. I thought that I owed the lady a full explanation. Besides, I wanted a full explanation myself. Finally (oh, yes, I see you fellows grinning and winking), Mary was not there, and this young lady rather interested me. I decided that I would have five minutes' talk with her" ; "The man who wrote 'The Prisoner of Zenda,' Anthony Hope, has been turning his talents to short-story writing, and has produced a small volume of them under the title of " A Frivolous Cupid." He has a light and sure touch, and in these stories his sparkle and brilliancy have not deserted him. They are not magazine stories by any means, and therefore they have a charming style about them. In one called "Reluctance" the process of what is commonly called "puppy" love is happily described with the inevitable result. The youngster in a few years passed by the married woman he once loved and actually did not know her. The stories are written in the author's best vein."-Commercial Advertiser, 1895 ; There is a curious comment by the author in The Bookman: "Mr. Hope has recently written to The Bookman that an American firm has published 'a new volume of stories, by Anthony Hope, entitled " Frivolous Cupid.'" Mr. Hope says: 'I have never written any story or any volume of stories under the title of " Frivolous Cupid," and I am in no way responsible for this publication. The stories are very probably written by me. I have not seen the volume. But since I myself exercise a strict censorship with regard to the republication of my earlier essays, I do not desire that in America, where I have received such kind and generous encouragement, I should be held responsible for what may be, in my own judgment, entirely unworthy of republication.'" ; VG.
