TOPEKA STATE JOURNAL, MONDAY, JANUARY 1, 1900
BOOK NOTES

"The Wife of His Youth and Other Stories," by Charles W. Chesnutt, author of "The Conjure Woman." Price $1.50. Published by Houghton Mifflin company, New York, (through Kellam Book & Stationary company.)

This is a book of very strong short stories. The first one, the title story, "The Wife of His Youth," appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, and will be remembered by many as being one of the strongest character stories published last year in any of the magazines. These stories go on to prove, as did "The Conjure Woman," Mr. Chesnutt's ability, power and literary skill as a story writer. It is certain that this new volume will be heartily welcomed.
