0 Reviews
In his work, Chekhov is renowned for his wisdom and wit; in his life, he needed them. Raised by a brutal and alcoholic father, he moved to Moscow to escape--and to become the author of popular magazine stories. His stories led to plays and his plays to fame, but tuberculosis claimed him at the early age of forty-four. 8-page photo insert.
