About the Author

Ivan Bunin (1870-1953) was regarded by many of his contemporaries as the rightful successor to Tolstoy and Chekhov as a master of Russian letters. He won the Nobel Prize in 1933. Graham Hettlinger lives in Bethesda, Maryland.

Reviews

Bunin displays a painterly eye for detail. He is a master at capturing the moment. * Publishers Weekly * The plots of Bunin's stories are not necessarily original, but their force and animation never fail to surprise. * Library Journal * Vibrant...a fine introduction to Bunin's work and a reminder of its importance. * New York Sun * Graham Hettlinger's new translation...gives us a Bunin startling in his vividness, sensuality, and restraint. * Virginia Quarterly Review * Bunin is, unaccountably, the least translated of the great Russian writers (and his best work ranks with that of Turgenev and Chekov). This splendid volume takes an important step towards righting a long-standing wrong. * Kirkus *
