Ah, childhood. A time of blissful innocence, "sweet pears and cakes." Not so fast. As Chekhov realistically observes, children are exposed to a wide range of experiences and emotions. Usually by adults, who long ago forgot what it was like to be a child. The children in this collection of stories range from two to nine years old, but they see it all, from life to death, from love to duplicity. By showing us these things through the eyes of children, Chekhov, the master story-teller, holds up a mirror to our own lives. This collection includes the following stories: "Grisha", "An Incident", "The Cook's Wedding", "A Trifling Occurrence", and "Vanka".
"Chekhov's stories are as wonderful (and necessary) now as when they first appeared." (Raymond Carver)
