    " I've had to place stickers over her chest, but what a great book. I work at a high school. The last short story is shattering. "

    " I've actually read most of these stories in other books, but this collection has authors that are difficult to find in English. Such as: Zinovyeva-Annibal, Teffi, Krzhizhanovsky, Dobychin, Shukshin, Eppel, and Buida. "

    " A wonderful compilation of Russian short stories, and an excellent selection of lesser-known authors. Beautifully edited by Robert Chandler. Highly recommended. "

    " Dostoyevsky's 'Bobok' is yet another masterpiece by this Russian genius! An interesting way to look at what happens to us after we pass away...very interesting... "

    " Nice mix of classic Russian authors, along with early and late soviet era authors. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Highjump | 6/7/2011

    " Excellent selection from the Golden Age to the late Soviet period, and a good mix of tones - humorous, poignant, ironic, tragic - but authentically Russian all the way through. Also has excellent informative biographies of the authors. "

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.
