Publisher's Summary

Maxim Gorky, whose real name was Alexey Maximovich Pyeshkov, is probably the best-known late-19th-century Russian fiction writer among the English-speaking world. His pen name translates as Maxim the Bitter, an attitude reflected in many of his works.

Much of his writing reflects his own terrible life experiences and suffering. It is in his short stories that he reveals his true genius. "Her Lover" describes the plight of a lonely, alienated woman who creates an imaginary lover for herself.

Rather sad little story

I'm glad to have found several individual inexpensive Russian stories available in English. The narrator speaks clearly. She has a rather unusual cadence that isn't pleasing to some reviewers.

Awful rendition

The narrator had an awful voice. It deterred me from the narrative and actually enjoying the text.
