And they lived happily ever after.... Or did they? In this collection of stories, Chekhov focuses his powers of observation on the complex relationships between men and women. Why do we couple in the first place? s it for love, security, comfort, a sense of obligation? And then what? How long can these reasons keep us together? These questions, and more, are explored with the subtlety and insight of the master story-teller.
This collection includes the following stories: "An Enigmatic Nature", "The Huntsman", "An Avenger", "Bad Weather", and "A Happy Ending."
Chekhov's stories are as wonderful (and necessary) now as when they first appeared. (Raymond Carver)

Dark Absurdity, Insightful Humanity
- Michael "I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read."
The name of the gun shop is "Smucks"
A good view into how far our society has evolved. In the ridiculousness of these stories is comedy, especially the middle one, which had me laughing out loud.
- Susan "I don't usually rush out for all the "best sellers", but give each intriguing book/author a look. I have found many diamonds in the rough."
