With an Introduction by Richard Pevear.
Stories contains the classic works of Anton Chekhov, as well as rarely anthologized pieces-all of which have been expertly translated by Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky. The stories selected span the entire length of the famed Russian writer's career and exposes contradictions and rhythms in his art. A brief biographical essay by Pevear precludes the exemplary prose of Stories.
