Description

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.

Editorial Review

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
