|Author: ||Kazak, Ihar [Igor Gregory Kozak]|
Dr. Kozak collects 13 short humorous stories by Russian author, Arkady Averchenko. They make light of the sad and hard conditions of post World War I Europe and Russia.
"In this representative collection of Averchenko's short stories, the laconic and concise style and use of mostly brief and pertinent dialogue makes for easy reading and comprehension in either language, be it Russian or English. It had been indeed an honor and pleasure to render the author's style into English."
