Written in France toward the end of his career, these stories are Chekhov's only attempt at the linked collection. The first is a grotesque Gogolian comedy; the second a narrator's impassioned response; and the third a poignant story of failed love. Translated by the impeccable David Helwig and fabulously illustrated by Seth, Three Stories is essential for any Chekhov enthusiast.
Anton Chekhov: Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904), Russian author and playwright, is considered one of the greatest short-story writers in the history of world literature.
If there is any fault to this collection, it is that it is too short...it is jam-packed with artistic merit...and is an excellent addition to any Chekhov fan's library, and a solid introduction to his work.-The Winnipeg Review
