The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
This week’s story is from About Love by Anton Chekhov, translated by David Helwig, illustrated by Seth, and published by Biblioasis. Written in France toward the end of his career, these stories are 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.
