The Wife, and other storiesThe Wife, and other stories by Anton Chekhov
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A book one should read if one wishes to understand the Russian society during the times of Anton Chekov’s era.

Don’t expect anything special in the stories. Most of it reflects how males ruled roost, possibly still do, in Russia.

The last story is about counting your chickens before they hatch. The one story that stays in my memory.
