This book is written in 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". Its contents include: "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".
