This collection of Chekhov stories was published in 1970s Moscow.

That and the translations are pretty unique. In the Ravine, one of his better, and better known stories, is here as In the Gully.

Other than that, enjoy the stories for what they are, a chronologica

Very good! I would like to read more stories by Chekhov. That time period in Russia is very interesting, and Chekhov's characters and stories draw you in. My fave was "Gooseberries", with Ivan Ivanich musing on the nature of happiness and suffering.

Chekhov's grandfather was a serf, who had bought his own freedom and that of his three sons in 1841. He also taught himself to read and write. Yevgenia Morozova, Chekhov's mother, was the daughter of a cloth merchant.

"When I think back on my childhood," Chekhov recalled, "it all seems quite glo
