Chekhov began writing short stories during his days as a medical student at the University of Moscow. After graduating in 1884 with a degree in medicine, he began to freelance as a journalist and writer of comic sketches. Early in his career, he mastered the form of the one-act play and produced several masterpieces of this genre including The Bear (1888), The Wedding (1889) and The Lady with the Dog (1899) and many more. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
Chekhov is the short-story master. You can't go wrong with this book.Published 4 months ago by A. Smith
Great writing, but can't say I like the style. He leaves the ending open to conjecture. I like a nice tidy ending.Published 5 months ago by Carolyn M. Hammond
Chekov is indeed that master of the short story. While 'The Lady With the Dog was excellent' I found 'An Anonymous Story' to be the best in this collection.Published 5 months ago by James Franks
Don't buy this manual if you expect actual dog-grooming tips. What a disappointment.Published 8 months ago by Terence Dineen
