Rudyard Kipling, winner of the Nobel Prize in literature in 1907, has long been considered an important and vibrant, even controversial, storyteller and poet. The Wish House and Other Stories is a collection of Kiplings finest works, including the stories In the House of Suddhoo, The Disturber of Traffic, and The Eye of Allah, the poems The Runners, The Return of the Children, and The Last Ode, and his famous story about Afghanistan, The Man Who Would Be King. Each piece was selected by poet and scholar Craig Raine, who writes in his Preface, We need to think about Kipling. He is our greatest short-story writer, but one whose achievement is more complex and surprising than even his admirers recognize.From the Trade Paperback edition.
