Summary

Witty, wise, and beautifully poignant short stories from a master of the form Bernice is pretty but awkward. She can’t dance, flirt, or hold her liquor. When her sophisticated cousin, Marjorie, finally decides to help the poor girl, the results are dramatic—suddenly the boys are interested in Bernice. Too interested, thinks Marjorie. So she decides to play a cruel trick—but Bernice gets the last laugh.   First published in the Saturday Evening Post, “Bernice Bobs Her Hair” is a classic tale of the Jazz Age and but one of the highlights of this classic story collection. Other gems include “The Ice Palace,” “The Cut-Glass Bowl,” and “The Offshore Pirate,” a delightfully clever story about a spoiled young girl who falls in love with an unlikely suitor.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
