Charming descriptive book about the city of Edinburgh in the 1870s. It sounds like it was a tough, though romantic, place to live.
This is an unhappy book, interesting but not cheerful. The actor's wife tells the story of her growing disillusionment with her husband, who as a succesful stage actor never can leave behind his massive ego, love of late nights, and the loose ways of the theater world. When she begins to be pulled into his less then moral doings, watch out.
Amazing collection. If you're just dipping in to Russian literature beyond the usual suspects, this is a great place to start. The editor notes the interesting contrast between the first two stories: "The Queen of Spades," by Pushkin, which could have been written by a French or British author, and "The Cloak," by Gogol, which is simply Russian.
A rambling, amusing story of Irish nobility and village life. The book is said to have inspired Sir Walter Scott.
