“Man will only become better when we have shown him to himself as he is..”    
– Anton Chekhov

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov is widely considered one of history’s finest writers of short stories and plays. Indeed, it could well be argued that he invented or at least perfected the short story.

This compact volume is an introduction to the works of the master storyteller, via nine stories spanning the last twenty years of his life.

Contains fresh translations of the stories: Joy, The Dear Dog, A Little Joke, Bliny, Happiness, The Man in a Case, Gooseberries, About Love, The Bride.
