Q: What do Tiger, Paris, Lindsay, Alec, and Oprah have in common with the enduring characters of Anton Chekhov?
A: Love, loss, pride, yearning, heartbreak, renewal, transcendence: the very stuff of life.
The immortal stories of Anton Chekhov have long entranced readers and listeners with their insights into the universal truths of human behavior...but you've never read (or heard) them quite like this.
Former friends Nicole and Paris exchange prickly pleasantries in "Tall and Short".
Talk-show host Dave narrowly averts another potential domestic crisis in "A Transgression".
Reality star Kim shares her newfound notoriety with Khloe and Kourtney in "Joy".
In a witty, graceful, and revelatory feat of literary reinvention, acclaimed novelist and humorist Ben Greenman takes 19 of Chekhov's greatest stories and recasts them with some of the best-known luminaries of our time - with eye-opening, and oddly ennobling, results.
