Publisher's Summary

Eight classic tales by Chekhov come alive through the gentle yet powerful reading of Richard Setlok. "The Kiss", the story of an awkward young soldier who receives a kiss by mistake, leads off the collection, which also includes "Not Wanted", "Anyuta", "A Misfortune", "Expensive Lessons", "The Head of the Family", "The Trousseau", and "The Helpmate". It's a must for Chekhov lovers and a perfect introduction for those who have never experienced the work of this Russian literary great.

What the Critics Say

"Setlok brings to [these stories] that delicate balance of humor and pathos that is essential to Chekhov's style, while at the same time conveying...the elusive dimension of poetry that is often overlooked in readings of [Chekhov]." (Library Journal)

    "My last Chekhov"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Kiss to be better than the print version?

    I read 'The Apple Orchard ' as required reading in Literature in 1965 FSU. I am reminded of his greatness in 2016. S. Maugham praises Chekhov in V-II Short stories East To West as a mentor in his writings which prompted me to read this current book hereof referred.
