Jack the Englishman

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 It was a beautiful spring afternoon in the northern hill districts of Tasmania. The sky was of a bird's egg blue, which even Italy cannot rival, and the bold outline of hills which bounded the horizon, bush clad to the top, showed a still deeper azure blue in an atmosphere which, clear as the heaven above, had never a suggestion ...

Jenny

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 As Helge Gram turned the corner into Via Condotti in the dusk a military band came down the street playing “The Merry Widow” in such a crazy, whirling time that it sounded like wild bugle calls. The small, dark soldiers rushed past in the cold afternoon, more like a Roman cohort intent on attacking barbarian hosts tha...

Japanese Girls and Women

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

 In offering a revised edition of a book which has been before the public for more than ten years, there is little to say that has not been said in the original Preface.

Jane Austen and Her Times

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

Of Jane Austen’s life there is little to tell, and that little has been told more than once by writers whose relationship to her made them competent to do so.

Jinny the Carrier

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

It had rained that April more continuously than capriciously, but this morning April showed at last her fairer face.

Julia France and Her Times

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

The entrance of a British cruiser into the harbor of St. Kitts was always followed by a ball at Government House in the little capital of Basse Terre.
