[stories by Anton Chekhov]Downloadable Audiobook - 2010
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 with their insights into the universal truths of human behavior . . . but you've never read 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 nineteen 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.
