Love, Anton Chekhov


Written in France toward the end of his career, these stories are Anton Chekhov's only attempt at the linked collection. “A Man in a Shell” is a grotesque Gogolian comedy; “Gooseberries,” a narrator's impassioned response; and “About Love,” a poignant story of failed relationships. Translated by the impeccable David Helwig and fabulously illustrated by Seth, About Love is essential for any Chekhov enthusiast.
