The title story here is a confrontation between a chorus girl and her lover's wife. But the other stories wander far and wide, showing various sides of late 19th century Russian life.

Chekhov's stories "are very short, almost miniatures. For the most part, they are elegant trifles, worked out with painstaking care . . . The author is not interested in outlining the details, but the picture that he has sparingly conjured up stands out lifelike; he is always in a hurry to observe and tell. Therefore the brevity and quality of his stories. His stories seldom exceed ten pages in length, while some do not exceed four. They constitute a series of sketches, of miniatures of real value, among which can be found some real gems."—Persky. Chekhov was a dramatist as well as a novelist. His plays "resemble the dramatic work of Gorky, Andreyev, and for that matter of practically all Russian playrights, in being formless and having no true movement; but they contain some of his best Russian portraits, and some of his most subtle interpretations of Russian national life."—Phelps.
