This collection of lesser-known of short stories - ranging from absurd humorous sketches to psychological pieces and tragic stories - demonstrates Anton Chekhov's mastery of the genre. Although varying in tone and purpose, what these tales have in common is a profound and subtle understanding of the human condition, in its farcical and melancholy aspects, couched in Chekhov's trademark minimalist style.
