A Tranquil Star--Stories by Primo Levi
This is a collection of Levi's previously unpublished stories, written between the 1940s and the 1980s. The style and themes are all over the place--memoir, fantasy, satire. One I found particularly moving was "Bear Meat," an old man's memory of the physical and mental tests and rewards of mountain climbing in the Italian alps in his youth.
The Birds & Other Stories by Daphne du Maurier
I recently discovered that Hitchcock's film The Birds was inspired by a story by Daphne du Maurier. "The Birds" is the first story in this volume, and it was fairly chilling, if a bit abruptly ended. I can't honestly say I enjoyed the other stories much, though; they seemed to strain a bit for effect, and were darker than I like, even to the point of being depressing.
