The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More
This is one of those books that I read when I was young, maybe about 13 and it affected me in that deep, profound way that certain books do. Snippets of the stories within this book have stayed with me over the years. In particular, there are segments from within The Swan that still make my heart ache and I remember being so intrigued by the cleverness of The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar as a story within a story within a story. I’m pretty sure I also had a decent go at learning how to see through playing cards.
