About the Author

Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860 - 1904) was a Russian playwright and short story writer, who is considered to be among the greatest writers of short fiction in history. His career as a playwright produced four classics and his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Along with Henrik Ibsen and August Strindberg, Chekhov is often referred to as one of the three seminal figures in the birth of early modernism in the theater. Chekhov practiced as a medical doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife", he once said, "and literature is my mistress."

Anton Chekhov and his collected stories are an amazing read. This version, however, is TERRIBLE! It's so cheaply put together that there isn't even a table of contents. One has to just flip through the pages to find where a story begins or ends. Terribly translated, full of typos. Don't waste your money on this. You could do better printing the stories off the internet and stapling them together.
