Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

At noon on a day late in September the express train from Paris rested, panting and impatient, on its brief halt in the station at Rouen.

Through the press passed waiters, bearing above their heads trays with cup...

Gone Fishing

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

Barney Chard, thirty-seven—financier, entrepreneur, occasional blackmailer, occasional con man, and very competent in all these activities—stood on a rickety wooden lake dock, squinting against the late afternoon sun, and waiting for his current business prospect to give up the pretense of being interested in trying to catch fish.

Gigolo

Cate: Short Stories  Author:novel 

Though he rarely heeded its summons—cagy boy that he was—the telephone rang oftenest for Nick. Because of the many native noises of the place, the telephone had a special bell that was a combination buzz and ring. It sounded above the roar of outgoing cars, the splash of the hose, the sputter and hum of the electric battery in the rear...

Gibraltar and its Sieges

 For several years Sophia had listened calmly to my glowing descriptions of Shady Dale and the people there.

Once she went so far as to sugg...
