The Power of a Word is a short story in which the hero's name is not mentioned. It was inspired by a Soviet folk-lore tale about Joseph Stalin. The Rains has Orlov, a stove-setter, for its hero. It shows the pridehe takes in his trade, and the effort he makes to regain his reputation wi th those who have lost faith in his skill. It is an illustration of the nature of Soviet man, who is capable of overcoming any difficulty in serving the community. The Bread of Life describes the thrill Anna Maximovna Ptitsyna, a collective farmer and a candidate for Deputy, experienced during an unusual meeting with her electors. The rough copy of An Unfinished Story gives three alternative titles: Letters of Love, Loyalty, and The Family. The author did not make his final choice before he died. He rewrote this short story of love, friendship and a Soviet family several times, seeking to improve its form even shortly before his death. It was published in its latest version. The Voice on the Way is the story of an incident that befell the author as he was returning one night from Bakhchisarai to Yalta by way of Al-Petri Pass. In it he sings man's tireless aspiration to move onward." (from the front flap). Pyotr Andreyevich Pavlenko (1899 - 1951), was a Soviet writer, screenwriter and war correspondent.
