Now We Can All Go Home:
Three Novellas in Homage to Chekhov
Yelena of Uncle Vanya meets a man more appealing to her than Astrov; Irina of Three Sisters must deal with life and work after the death-by-duel of her fiancé, as must her sisters; and Dr. Dorn of The Seagull narrates the lives of his friends on the old estate after Kostya's suicide. The novellas offer us a glimpse into the imagined lives of eight major Chekhov characters after the curtain has come down.
