    Translated by D.H. Lawrence, S.S. Koteliansky, and Leonard Woolf     

    Ivan Alekseyevich Bunin (1870-1953) was the first Russian author to receive the Nobel Prize for literature. 

    The theme of the title story, which describes the death of a wealthy American in the island of Capri, has distinct links with the more famous treatment of this subject - "Death in Venice", by Thomas Mann. Bunin wrote: "The idea of a story [called initially] 'Death on Capri' came to me and in four days I finished the piece. Everything else, "San Francisco" included, was pure fantasy. Nothing in it was real apart from the fact that once a certain American had really died after dinner in Quisisana hotel."    

    The collection consists of the following stories:    

    • The Gentleman from San Francisco  
    • Gentle Breathing  
    • Kasimir Stanislavovitch  
    • Son
    Public Domain (P)2019 Voices of Today
