Zoshchenko is the Russian version of Mel Brooks. He is extremely funny. The stories are very short and easy to read and gives a good insight into the post-Revolution Russia. For someone who struggled his whole life with melancholy, his stories are remarkably light and down-to-earth.

This book of very, very short stories is delightful and does indeed bring to mind the old saying "the more things change, the more they stay the same". These stories written over eighty years ago are a window into life in the new "Soviet Union" of the 1920's and perhaps a window into life in modern day Russia as well. With black humor Zoshchenko describes the trials of living in an uncertain world which just might not be an improvement on the lost world of the czars. Loved this book.
