    Review quote
    I can't help but feel, Max Bollinger has picked these stories direct from his soul. His introduction to this book uncovers the essence of how important Chekhov has been to him since a young lad growing up in Russia. Garnett's translation, I think also, adds to the period authenticity of Chekhov's work and may be as close in meaning to stories as we will ever get to in English. Stephen Dunne, Australia The early stories of Anton Chekhov in this volume are obvious early works done by a master storyteller. They are sometimes simple sketches of characters which in a few pages illustrates their humanity, their strengths and weaknesses. All of the stories have been available in audiobook format, but for me reading them for myself is very gratifying. Chekhov has a grasp on the human condition and in the last three stories of the book he shows the promise that would be fulfilled with his famous stories, plays and novels. Joseph Belliveau, Canada Short Stories by Anton Chekhov as translated by Constance Garnett and edited by Max Bollinger provides the text to the fourteen stories on the Audio CD's 1 to 3 of Chekhov's Short Stories as very ably narrated by Max Bollinger. My favourite stories in this collection are The Helpmate and About Truth both of which are very witty. Alan Moreton, UK
