    Five stars If Chekhov had lived longer, would he have written short stories like these Would he have left Russia after the revolution To me, he is the greatest russian short story writer, and possibly the greatest ever, but after reading these stories and a novella , I might have to position Bunin alongside Chekhov,

    Loved everything except Dry Valley which I gave up on will return to it later, when degeneration stories don t bore me quite so much.It s a shame that The Gentleman from San Francisco is his most famous work because it really isn t his best it is still good but I think mostly, it s just accessible to a western audience

    In this collection of his tales, it is interesting to see the development of Bunin s style during his career Since his earliest works, though, it is possible to see how clear and lyrical are his narratives, making justice to the tradition of great Russian tale authors Perhaps the quality of his prose cannot be equaled to that of Chekhov of Tolstoy,
