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.
