Stories read this month

Novellas:

First Love by Ivan Turgenev  - a bitter sweet story of unrequited love. Highly recommended. 

The Fox by D.H Lawrence -  Post First World War, a young soldier stays with two self efficient women at a country home and decides to marry one, with tragic results. A psychological story which examines friendship, love and jealousy. 

Dr Glas by Hjalmar Soderberg - a surprising novella concerning a doctor's adoration for a female patient that leads to murder. Beautifully written as a journal, this story feels contemporary in tone despite being written 103 years ago.
