Review of [The Wife of His Youth]

Wife of His Youth, The. By Charles W. Chesnutt. (Illustrated.) Houghton, Mifflin & Co. Boston, 8vo. 323 pages. $1.50

Mr. Chesnutt has made a distinct mark in recent fiction[sic] His earlier book was of a quality which compelled attention. This volume of short stories is less distinctly original, but is full of close and humorous studies of negro character portrayed with humor and pathos.
