Book Review: "Between the Dark and the Daylight" by Willam Dean Howells - 1907

This was another from Project Gutenberg.  It is no secret that I thoroughly enjoy Howells.  He is the realist of realists, and that suits a realist like me.  His stories may not have much going on, but I love every minute of them.

This is a collection of lightly connected short stories.  Most of them involve the brain and its mysterious functions--particularly memory.  One of the characters in most of the stories is a psychiatrist that gives explanations about what he thinks is happening.

All of the stories were completely enjoyable.  A few of them were simply a group of friends telling stories of their experiences.  Most of the stories involved love.

Highly recommended for realists.
