Maybe because he disappeared at such an early age, [or maybe even because his name is not so readily retained by English speakers!], Vsevolod Garshin remains virtually unheralded in the West. However, having read this collection of 16 stories I find myself wishing I could have known the man, so strongly does his open, honest, inventive spirit shine through his writing. I found my own spirit being strongly moved by the arguments put forward in his powerful and original approaches to describing the human curse of war, by the deeply sincere sympathy and understanding he shows for a madman, or just by the beautiful ways he constructs his tales, and by the sheer variety of approaches he can find to telling a tale.
For me, the true test of whether I love an author is when the writing is so fresh and original that I can't wait to read it all again, and with young Vsevolod that is truly the case!

a little known master 27 April 2009
By Russell Pittman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Garshin's stories deserve a much wider audience. In my experience, even Russian readers do not know his work, or barely remember it from their school days. And yet the best of these stories -- the title story, a couple of others also related to the Russo-Turkish War, and a few more, quite diverse -- are as memorable and carefully crafted as the stories of Checkhov and Tolstoy. Read this book and wish that Garshin, like so many other great artists, had had time to create more before his early death.

A great book 31 May 2014
By Maan Kawas - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of those great books that you want to read more than once! It's creative short stories leav deep impression on one's mind and heart. Actually, it is one of my favorite book. Reading the stories showed me the close connection between some stories and the life of the great writer who committed suicide at young age. 'Four Days' in particular, is one of those masterpieces I've ever read. Although it is only a few pages long, it is filled with profound meanings and intesive existential experience.
