Chekhov and Tolstoy



Great picture of Chekhov with Tolstoy in the Crimea in 1897.

  1. What a great photo. I used to be a huge Chekhov fan but haven't read or seen a play in a long time. I should.

  2. Great to see you, av. Chekhov is one of my favorites. Némirovsky, who wrote Suite française, also wrote a wonderful short bio on Chekhov. Everyman's Library also has some great collections of his stories and plays.

  3. Yes, I just saw your other photo above. Another great one. I remember when the reading group read her book -- I guess I should try that book at some point.
