    " I just read "The bear". It was funny and unexpected compared to what I have read by Chekhov previously. "

    " A great, modern, American translation of Chekov. Loved his translation of Seagull, currently working on Uncle Vanya. Keeps the heart of Chekov alive while making the text more accessible than many of the dry, melancholy, British translations. "

    " I read The Seagull from this book. Supposedly this is a wonderful translation, and has great notes in the back to help understanding. I look forward to reading the other plays in this book. "
