Presented here are twelve short stories by Anton Chekhov, one of the finest masters of that difficult form. There is the richly comic “Oh! The Public,” about a hassled ticket inspector, a wry look at morals and manners in “The Chorus Girl,” and the melancholic tale of a cab driver in “Misery.” Perhaps the finest of all is the novella In the Ravine, a minutely observed look at life in a village through the eyes of one family.  All the characters come to life with their foibles, their strengths, and their hopes. Kenneth Branagh uses his natural talent for characterization to bring this village to life.

Author Bio: Anton Chekhov

Anton Chekhov (1860–1904), the author of hundreds of short stories and several plays, is regarded by many as both the greatest Russian storyteller and the father of modern drama. He described the Russian life of his time using a deceptively simple technique devoid of obtrusive literary devices, thereby becoming the prominent representative of the late nineteenth-century Russian realist school. His early stream-of-consciousness style strongly influenced the literary world, including writers such as James Joyce.
