Originally published in 1895, Laura E. Richards’ funny, charming short stories “Jim of Hellas, or In Durance Vile” and “The Troubling of Bethesda Pool” are rarely found in print. In “Jim of Hellas,” an island town of eccentric old sea captains meets a charismatic Greek sailor. “Bethesda Pool” is a taciturn and solitary innkeeper who makes a grand gesture to help a young acquaintance.
The stories in this volume are just as exquisitely picturesque as the others. —Minneapolis Journal.
