    " My copy of these stories is a ten-year-old, out-of-print Folio Society book, which is longer and has a wonderful foreword about Chekov. Chekov is a tremendously talented writer. I had never read anything by him. I tend to shy away from "artsy" authors and that is what you hear about his plays. Some of the short stories are humorous and others are downright depressing. I am drawn to his refusal to show empathy for his characters. He seems to be reflecting Russian life as he found it, often with little hope and some nasty characters. Chekov reminds me in a way of Dickens, both are powerful writers and both published their works in periodicals. "

    " This one recalls beery evenings when I still shuddered from the emotional impact of such simple stories. I suppose most folks at the time - the early 1990s - were swayed by Carver or Bukowski. I worked ALL the ime but recall buying this new at hawley Cooke and then being floored. The Grasshopper is the one which lingers, assuming a parallel position with Joyce's Araby and tales from Sherwood Anderson as the haunting foundation of a life spent between pages. "
