^^Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book?

And Heart of Darkness and A Moveable Feast are correct!

Ha ha. Very Happy It was too easy, wasn't it?

Nice to see this thread active again, though.

Giving your new clue a little thought.

Good guess, but no.

It's a 20th c prose anthology.

...funny, too.

The second clue suggests a word which sounds the same as a word in the title of the book but is spelled a little differently.

Final clue: the solution is to be found in the "Golden Age of Steam" thread in the Off Topic section.

No takers?

OK, it was "The Best of Myles", an anthology of Brian O'Nolan (aka Flann O'Brien)'s Myles na Gopaleen columns for the Irish Times.

Sorry if that was a bit obscure.

I'd better pass the baton to someone else.
