Well known throughout the world for his late-19th and early-20th century plays Uncle Vanya, The Three Sisters, The Sea Gull and The Cherry Orchard, Anton Chekhov also wrote numerous short dramatic sketches, faces, burlesques and dialogues. In this volume, George Malko has newly translated all of these dramatic writings, 19 works dating from 1883 to 1902, six of which have never before been translated into English. As translator George Malko notes, this gathering is a reminder that despite a life of tragedy, Chekhov believed in life's enduring comic humanity.
