A meticulously chosen collection of stories about love in all its guises.

Part of the Macmillan Collector’s Library; a series of stunning, pocket-sized classics with ribbon markers. These beautiful books make perfect gifts or a treat for any book lover. This edition is edited and introduced by Becky Brown.

Here is a treasure trove of love stories. O. Henry brings comedy with his tale of a busy broker working too hard to remember that he’s actually married his adored young wife. There’s The Lady with the Little Dog, Chekhov’s famous story about true love and devotion, and Katherine Mansfield writes touchingly about unrequited love in Mr and Mrs Dove. With stories spanning first love to enduring love in old age, from infatuation to heartbreak told by some of the best writers, Classic Love Stories makes a perfect gift.
