Chelkash and Other Stories Book Description

Includes the title story, in which a thieving vagrant takes on a young apprentice; "Makar Chudra," the story of an ill-fated romance; and "Twenty-six Men and A Girl," in which wretched bakery workers destroy their only source of joy.

1929. From the Preface: Alexei Maximovich Peshkov is the real name of the man whose fame as Maxim Gorky, the bitter, has spread rapidly over the world...At the age of fifteen he tried to enter Kazan University, but, failing to gain admittance, he found work in a biscuit factory at 6s. a month; a description of this grey episode is given in Twenty-six of Us and One Other. After this he led a vagabond, Gipsy life, traces of which appear in A Rolling Stone, In the Steppe, and One Autumn Night. He sold apples and, at another time, beer in the street, became a railway porter, a recruit, and secretary to a barrister. Then again, he rambled through the countryside in southern Russia, Ukraina, the Crimea to the Caucasus; and from this came Chelkash. Contents: Chelkash; Comrades; One Autumn Night; In the Steppe; Twenty-six of Us and One Other; The Green Kitten; A Rolling Stone; Her Lover; and Chums.
