I know I’m going to get an ear-bashing from everybody for starting yet another personal reading challenge – Checkin Off The Chekhov Shorts, but this one I really couldn’t resist. After launching my 100 Shots of Short challenge, I quickly discovered the short stories of Anton Chekhov, and quickly feel in love with them. Initially I suppressed my desire to immerse myself in Chekhov and I was doing good, I really was.
Fatefully however I then discovered James Rusk’s awesome digital archive of 201 Chekhov stories, the entire collection of stories translated by Constance Garnett. How could I resist? Answer: Shamefully I couldn’t!
