From Library Journal:
Troyat, author of such critically acclaimed biographies as Pushkin (1970) and Tolstoy (1967), here turns his attention to yet another great writer of his birthplace. In his highly evocative short stories and dramas, Anton Chekhov captured perfectly the frustration, ennui, and sense of entrapment that characterized a provincial Russia poised on the brink of the 20th century but experiencing little sense of progress. Troyat's fascinating biography delineates the development of Chekhov's artistry, which flourished despite a difficult family life, a demanding medical career, some tumultuous romances, and a lengthy illness. The masterly English translation of this important biography is an essential acquisition. Natalie C. Tyler, English Dept., Ohio State Univ., Columbus
