"Chekhov's genius left an indelible impact on every literary form in which he wrote, but none more so than short fiction. Now, renowned translators Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky give us their peerless renderings of fifty-two Chekhov stories--a full deck! These stories, which span the full arc of his career, reveal the extraordinary variety and unexpectedness of his work, from the farcically comic to the darkly complex, showing that there is no one type of "Chekhov story." They are populated by a remarkable range of characters who came from all parts of Russia, all walks of life, and who, taken together, democratized the short story. Included here are a number never-before-translated stories, including "Reading" and "An Educated Blockhead." Here is a collection that promises profound delight"-- Provided by publisher.
Translated from the Russian.
