This is a collection of short stories by one of the best-loved authors in the USSR, Konstantin Paustovsky, who remains popular in Russia even after the collapse of Soviet communism. The collection includes not only some of his best-known works, but also many minor stories that have not been previously translated into English. Many of these should be of interest not only to Russian-language specialists, but also to the general reading public. Russian literary critics have long considered Paustovsky a master of the Russian language. The introduction to this collection analyzes the stylistic, thematic, and historical aspects of his work.
