Insignificant, I know, but my copy - in Romanian translation - has 500+ pages, so it probably contains different or at least more stories.
The Steppe is obviously the best known, the longest and the most acclaimed. I wasn't blown by it; I'm not much of a fan when it comes to describing landscapes, but I enjoyed its lyricism nevertheless.
I preferred A Nervous Breakdown for its implacability and fine portrayal of Vassilyev, plus many other short & funny ones.
