Summary (From the publisher):

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904) may be likened to his contemporaries, the pointilliste painters. Piece by piece, episode by episode, character by character, he constructs in prose a survey of the human condition. as David Magarshack writes in his introduction, on reading these stories 'one gets the impression of holding life itself, like a fluttering bird, in one's cupped hands'. After reading the title story Gorky wrote to Chekhov that everything he himself wrote seemed 'coarse and written not with a pen but with a log'. The stories typify Chekhov's extraordinary ability to compress a whole life into a few pages, and reveal that blend of comedy and tragedy with which he portrays the world.
