61:120 The Bet and Other Stories by Anton Chekov

A collection of short stories by Anton Chekov.  The Bet takes place between a banker and a lawyer who are debating whether imprisonment is a true punishment or not and the lawyer agrees to be imprisoned by the banker for 15 years.  The other stories deal deal with daily life and trials or more modest means.  In all the stories were interesting, although seemed very typical of morality at the time although there was much immorality that could be debated in them as well.
