'the greatest short story writer who has ever lived' Raymond Carver's unequivocal verdict on Chekhov's genius has been echoed many times by writers as diverse as Katherine Mansfield, Somerset Maugham, John Cheever and Tobias Wolf. While his popularity as a playwright has sometimes overshadowed his achievements in prose, the importance of Chekhov's stories is now recognized by readers as well as by fellow authors. Their themes - alienation, the absurdity and tragedy of human existence - have as much relevance today as when they were written, and these superb new translations capture their modernist spirit. Elusive and subtle, spare and unadorned, the stories in this selection are among Chekhov's most poignant and lyrical. They include well-known pieces such as 'The Lady with the Little Dog', as well as less familiar work like 'Gusev', inspired by Chekhov's travels in the Far East, and 'Rothschild's Violin', a haunting and darkly humorous tale about death and loss. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

It’s Always Sunrise Somewhere and Other Stories is the author’s second publication. This anticipated book will reveal more of his talent. It’s a collection of short fictional stories that are imbued with Caribbean flare and with a wide range of topics (i.e. love and lost, the immigrant experience, sex, sexuality, oppression, nostalgia, racism, religion, spirituality, psychopathology, coming of age and poverty). However, humor, pathos, parody and most importantly hope and inspiration are a reoccurring theme permeating throughout all of the relatively interconnected stories. In "3.am at the Café", disparate lives intersect with a prostitute, two closeted gay men, a cheating married man and a waitress who’s seen it all. In "The Purloined Heart" the supernatural, in the form of Haitian Voodoo rendering a macabre dance of love & obsession ; the semi-auto biographical "A Candle for Lina" a young boy remembers his Nanny from childhood in Haiti; since all non-native Americans are descendants of immigrants here in the USA, you will most likely identify with the immigrant experience in "The Reason Why Crickets Chirp"; experience the pungent punch of racism in "The Whistler's Song" or a controversial re-imagining of a ubiquitous bible tale in "Nemesis"; a bildungsroman and coming out story in "Sultry Boy"; a tortured love story between a hefty middle aged island gal & a married white businessman in the midst of a midlife crisis in "Cri De Coeur/Cry of the Heart" and hope & inspiration rises on the horizon in the title piece "It's Always Sunrise Somewhere."

Supernaturally tinged stories from William T. Vollmann, author of the National Book Award winner Europe Central In this magnificent new work of fiction, his first in nine years, celebrated author William T. Vollmann offers a collection of ghost stories linked by themes of love, death, and the erotic. A Bohemian farmer’s dead wife returns to him, and their love endures, but at a gruesome price. A geisha prolongs her life by turning into a cherry tree. A journalist, haunted by the half-forgotten killing of a Bosnian couple, watches their story, and his own wartime tragedy, slip away from him. A dying American romances the ghost of his high school sweetheart while a homeless salaryman in Tokyo animates paper cutouts of ancient heroes. Are ghosts memories, fantasies, or monsters? Is there life in death? Vollmann has always operated in the shadowy borderland between categories, and these eerie tales, however far-flung their settings, all focus on the attempts of the living to avoid, control, or even seduce death. Vollmann’s stories will transport readers to a fantastical world where love and lust make anything possible.

The stories in Mukoma's Marriage and Other Stories capture the lives of Zimbabwean men and the women they marry, and the lives of women and the men they fall in love with, each revealing the complexities of cultural and gender expectations against the backdrop of a changing country (war in the 1970s, political uncertainty in the 1980s and economic structural adjustment in the 1990s). Fati sets out to tell Mukoma's story, but ends up also telling his wives' stories. By telling his brother's story, and that of his women, he ends up telling his own story. Fati is a new and interesting protagonist in Zimbabwean literature with a voice at times innocent, yet increasingly incisive, humorous and engaging. These stories are deeply personal yet universal in their treatment of human relationships, ambitions, and misplaced cultural and gender expectations. Whether he is telling the story of his brother's first marriage, or remembers his brother's fights at a Parents Day event at Mhototi School, whether he recalls the night Mukoma took him to see a new baby in the alleyways of Glen View, Fati renders these stories with a measured, composed voice which doesn`t fail to delight with its unusual humour.
