Description

"This beautifully produced selection of the stories from Pushkin Press (in a new translation by Nicolas Pasternak Slater) is an ideal way to discover Chekhov." -- The Times (UK)

"Mysterious and mesmerising, these stories stay enshrined in the memory." -- The Daily Mail

"Near-perfect fiction, newly translated." -- Evening Standard

"The uncontestable father of the modern short story . . . his stories are some of the best that have ever been written.--- Guardian

"The language is subtle and lovely, full of a regretful tenderness." -- Sunday Express

"An excellent gift for anyone who enjoys short stories in general or classic Russian literature in particular." -- East West Review

"Chekhov's genius lies in the way he manages to convey with such apparent effortlessness a profound sense of the mystery of beauty, and of the sadness of those who observe and think . . . a masterpiece of minimalism" -- Phillip Pullman

"The greatest short story writer who has ever lived" -- Raymond Carver

"In Chekhov literature seems to break its wand like Prospero, renouncing the magic of artifice, ceremony and idealisation, and facing us, for the first time, with a reflection of ourselves in our unadorned ordinariness as well as our unfathomable strangeness." -- James Ladsun


"These are snapshots of flawed humanity viewed through a studied, concise lens. They were a pleasure to read." -- Never Imitate (blog)


"This new Pushkin collection edition would be a perfect place to start [reading Chekhov]... I like Pasternak Slater's use of words and he has done a great job keeping the wry humour of Chekhov and also his sense of human nature." -- Winston's Dad (blog)
