The article presents information on the book "Satan in the Suburbs," by Bertrand Russell. These are brilliant and, in a remote and inhuman way, amusing stories, a quite amazing performance considering that Russell is in his eighties and has never before attempted fiction. Certainly the most interesting thing about them is the glimpse they offer readers into the imaginative perception of human life which underlies Russell's work. This perception is embodied in the plots and the style rather than in the characters and can probably be seen most clearly in the title story.
