    Anton Chekhov is widely considered one of the best short-story writers of all time. Having influenced such writers as Ernest Hemingway, Raymond Carver, and James Joyce, Chekhov’s stories are often noted for their stream-of-consciousness style and their vast number. Raymond Carver once said, “It is not only the immense number of stories he wrote - for few, if any, writers have ever done more - it is the awesome frequency with which he produced masterpieces, stories that shrive us as well as delight and move us, that lay bare our emotions in ways only true art can accomplish.”

    What would have made The Complete Stories of Anton Chekhov, Vol. 2 better?

    better reader who showed he understood Chekhov. Heald reads too fast and is much too facile. Reads Chekhov as if the author were O'Henry.

    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Chekhov, who came out sounding like an American


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps Mr. Heald understands Chekhov, but he didn't help me understand him at all.
