Including such powerful tales as 'The Outcasts', 'Makar Chudra', 'One Autumn Night' and 'Twenty-Six and One', the literary talent of one of Russia's greatest writers shines through every sentence. Presenting the pioneer of socialist realism at his best, these stories form an essential part of the canon of early twentieth-century literature.
