Max Bollinger's Russian accent gives authenticity to this collection by the master of Russian shorts. The stories are wry and subtle, depicting Russian people and Russian life without hyperbole or excessive drama. Bollinger's passion for the text is evident, and this title demands—and rewards—the listener's careful attention. Gems include "A Tragic Actor," the story of a police captain's daughter who runs away with a troupe of traveling actors, and "Oh! The Public," a comedy of rules and regulation at odds with common sense. For lovers of the short story, or students of Chekhov, this collection should prove invaluable.
