Three friends decide to go out one night to get some girls. Mayer and Rybnikov had to spend some time convincing the cautious and fastidious Cassilyev to join them in their lascivious pursuits—even though Cassilyev himself is envious of his friends who are able to live their lives in a much more carefree fashion.

The three friends visit several brothels, but Cassilyev finds himself more inclined to simply talk with the girls and treat them to fancy drinks, rather than pay for intimate time alone with them. In trying to understand the lives and choices of the women at the brothel, he grows more and more disgusted with them. The contradiction he feels tosses him into personal turmoil, and the next day, his friends discover that he is in the midst of a nervous breakdown…

Anton Chekhov was a Russian physician, dramatist and author who is considered to be one of the greatest writers in history. His stream-of-consciousness short stories, written near the end of the 19th century, spurned a new literary genre that would later be echoed in works of several great writers, including James Joyce and William Faulkner. Chekhov’s stories are essential reading for all literary enthusiasts.

About the Author
Author Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov (1860–1904), the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays, is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. He described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, thereby becoming the prominent representative of the late nineteenth-century Russian realist school. His early stream-of-consciousness style strongly influenced the literary world, including writers such as James Joyce.
