THE TRUSTING AND THE MAIMED, by James Plunkett (Ilutchinson, I5s.).

WHEN a box of chocolates is proferred it is easy enough to try one delicacy after another until the contents have been exhausted. In a book of short stories the urge for one sitting is rarer.

This volume. however. is an irresistible selection. whether it be the soft centre of "Mercy" or the peppermint of "The Dublin Fusilier", The writing shines with the brilliance of the horn raconteur: one story tempts to the next, and the appetite becomes insatiable. But then, Mr. Plunkett does not rely on a conventional stage trishness hut creates scenes and people truly Irish from the depths of reality to the extremes of fantasy.
