PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Robin Kinkead's classic short story of one man's life saved by his quick wit in the face of an insulted, enraged, powerful Czar. This story is very short (5:35) but can lead to good discussion about the commonalities that span from the rich to the poor, the powerful to the weak. We all have cravings, we all have loves, we all have fears. How does one get oneself out of a tricky situation? When is a lie NOT a lie? What is diplomacy and how does one practice it?

There are many roots of discussion to follow along this path.

Though this story first appeared in The New Yorker in 1937, it is not yet beyond the public domain threshold, and I cannot charge for it. But it's so good. I recorded it for my classes and I offer it here for yours free of charge.
