This work is the first English translation of a selected collection of short stories by Arkady Averchenko (1881-1925), the prolific writer of satirical and humorous prose in prerevolutionary Russia. Arkady Averchenko lived much of his life abroad as emigre. Acknowledged as the King of Laugher, he left a prolific literary legacy of which this first volume is an impressive sampling, wherein, as one critic put it, 'the writer has, with eloquence and outward simplicity, uncovered the depths of the human soul and the relationships of man in society' by criticizing social ills and human weaknesses, rendering a truly universal appeal to his short stories and providing 'an elixir for the soul.
