Reviews

"In this representative collection of Averchenko's short stories, the laconic and concise style and use of mostly brief and pertinent dialogue makes for easy reading and comprehension in either language, be it Russian or English. It had been indeed an honor and pleasure to render the author's style into English." From the Translator's Introduction
