Short, poignant, with amazing narration.

White Nights is a short story of a young man living and observing on the edge of life in St. Petersburg. When he stops observing and dives in, he falls deeply in love. Sweet, beautiful and poignant.

“May your sky be clear, may your sweet smile be bright and untroubled and may you be blessed for that moment of blissful happiness which you gave to another lonely and grateful heart. My God, a whole moment of happiness! Is that too little for the whole of a man's life?”

I listened to this story on audiobook and the narrator, Arthur Grey, was brilliant. I don't know if I would have loved this story quite as much without his flawless narration.
