Chekhov as seen by Nemirovsky

I feel lucky to have found an inexpensive copy of Nemirovsky's A Life of Chekhov, as it seems pretty hard to find these days.  Suite Francaise really did a number on me, as I found myself fascinated by Nemirovsky, reading her biography and purchasing other books by her.  It was fascinating to read she took such great interest in Chekhov.  It is also interesting to see BBC did a radio production of Nemirovsky's biography of Chekhov.


  1. After reading Suite Francaise, I bought a copy of the Everyman's Library edition of four other novels. Haven't read any of them yet. Any recommendations?

  2. I liked David Golder, despite its rough edges.
