And they lived happily ever after.  Or did they?  In this collection of stories, Chekhov focuses his powers of observation on the complex relationships between men and women.  Why do we couple in the first place?  Is it for love, security, comfort, a sense of obligation?  And then what?  How long can these reasons keep us together?  These questions, and more, are explored with the subtlety and insight of the master story-teller.  This collection includes the following stories:  ‘An Enigmatic Nature’, ‘The Huntsman’, ‘An Avenger’, ‘Bad Weather’, and ‘A Happy Ending’.

Chekhov’s stories are as wonderful (and necessary) now as when they first appeared. –Raymond Carver
