The Schoolmaster and Other Stories by Anton Chekhov

Great collection of stories--but then, each volume in this 13-volume series has been great. I don't see how a short-story lover can go wrong with Chekhov, though this collection--the eleventh overall in the Constance Garnett translations--is heavier ...more
