Books to be 'Dreamed Through'
‘I heartily recommend taking as often as possible Chekhov’s books … and dreaming through them as they are intended to be dreamed through’ -- Vladimir Nabokov
For those with an unbridled passion for Anton Chekhov there is this box set of Collected Stories, weighing in at 1400 pages, bound in buckram, that would be a very handsome addition to any book shelf. It appears to be lavishly illustrated as well. I have a copy of The Shooting Party which I cherish.
