In a style reminiscent of Anton Chekhov himself - realistic, intimate, and dynamic - Mikhail Chekhov shares unparalleled memories and insights, transporting readers into the world of the Chekhov family.

He visits the places where his brother lived and worked and introduces the people he knew and loved, Leo Tolstoy and Piotr Tchaikovsky among them.

As a unique eyewitness to the beloved writer's formative years and his artistic maturity, Mikhail Chekhov shows here first-hand the events that inspired the plots for The Seagull, The Black Monk, and The Steppe, among other enduring works.

Captivating, surprising, and a joy to read, this memoir reveals the remarkable life of one the most masterful storytellers of our time.
