The Story of a Nobody is a profound and moving work of fiction, combining the political tensions of the day with a tale of deep poignancy and sorrow. With St Petersburg awash with extravagant, dissolute bureaucrats concerned only with increasing their vast riches, a member of a secret movement is infiltrated into one such household. Once there, the man sees for himself the profligacy he has sworn to oppose - yet he also sees purposelessness throughout life. Determining to follow his own values, he embarks upon a new path, little knowing that this too will lead him to tragedy - and a tragedy that he will find impossible to bear.

A psycological study of a Russian bureaucrat, the son of a great statesman, and his "unappreciated" manservant. This is also a story of class struggle, the haves versus the have nots, and was written about 20 years prior to the Russian Revolution of 1917. The ending could have been better, a common criticisim of Chekov, but still a good read.
