Here are 11 short stories and one novella by Anton Chekhov, one of the finest masters of what is acknowledged as a difficult genre. There is the richly comic Oh! The Public about a hassled ticket inspector, a wry look at morals and manners in The Chorus Girl, and the melancholic tale of a cab driver in Misery.

Perhaps the finest of all is the novella In The Ravine, a minutely observed look at life in a village through the eyes of one family. All the characters come to life with their foibles, their strengths, and their hopes. Kenneth Branagh uses his natural talent for characterisation to bring this village to life.

The other short stories in this collection are: The Trousseau, A Story Without a Title, Children, Fat and Thin, The Beggar, Hush!, The Orator, and An Actor's End.

    " My favorite story was the one about the monk. Unfortunately "In the Ravine" was my least favorite. I may have to revisit this book at a later date. "

    " The five stars is merely for "In the Ravine" which I read with the group, as for the rest, I have to revisit. "
