A married woman restlessly seeks a deeper love.

An insomniac ponders the meagreness of his life.

A man loses the respect of his family because of a counterfeit coin.

A duel of wits escalates into a clash of cultures - and more.


The Duel and Other Stories is the second in an exclusive three-volume edition of Chekhov's stories. Encompassing the intricacy and range of social connection, these exquisitely crafted stories trace the mutability of our everyday relationships as they stall, separate or entwine. In the strangely lyrical deadpan prose so characteristic of Chekhov's drama, they expose the misplaced affections, broken vows, and brilliant dreams of what it is to be human.

This unique collection offers a perfect introduction to one of Russia's - and the world's - greatest writers.
