The Horse-Stealers and Other StoriesBook - 1921
This early volume includes many of Chekhov's short stories (the form for which he is best known), including "A Slander," "Frost," "Darkness" and "A Dead Body." Many of Chekhov's stories involve the harsh realities of humanity. Chekhov practiced as a doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife," he once said, "and literature is my mistress."
