Synopsis

The English-language debut of Anton Chekhov’s immortal collection of crime and mystery stories

Considered on of the greatest dramatists of all time, Anton Chekhov began his literary career as a crime and mystery writer. Published in periodicals and literary journals from 1880–1890, these early psychological suspense stories provide a fresh look into Chekhov’s literary heritage and his formative years as a writer.
 
In stories like A Night in the Cemetery, Night of Horror,and Murder,not only will Chekhov’s dark humor and twisted crimes satisfy even the most hardboiled of mystery fans, but readers will again appreciate the penetrating, absurdist insight into the human condition that only Chekhov can bring. Whether it is the death of a young amateur playwright at the hands of an editor who hates bad writing, or a drunken civil servant who ends up trapped in a graveyard, these stories overflow with the unforgettable characters and unique sensibility that will forever make Chekhov one of the most fascinating figures in literature.
