About Love and Other Stories by Anton Chekhov (Translated by Rosamund Bartlett)
This collection of 17 stories by Anton Chekhov, who has been described as the greatest short story writer who ever lived, spans the years 1885-1902, when he was at his peak. Many of his most perfectly realised tales are here, from Gooseberries and About Love to the famous Lady With the Little Dog. Their themes – the absurdity and tragedy of human existence – have as much relevance today as when they were written and Rosamund Bartlett’s translation brings them to life for a new generation of readers.
