Anton Chekhov, mini-bio

"ANTOSHA CHEKHONTE"

PROFESSION
Physician, Fiction Writer, Playwright

FAVORITE BOOK
The Kreutzer Sonata by Leo Tolstoi
As long as there is a Tolstoy in literature, it is simple and gratifying to be a literary figure.

FAVORITE PLACE
France! France! France!

HOBBIES
Champagne and showgirls

FAVORITE FOOD
Ah, Caviar! I keep on eating it, but can never get my fill. Like olives. It's a lucky thing it's not salty.

LATEST PROJECT
I am writing a play which I probably will not finish until the end of November. I am writing it with considerable pleasure, though I sin frightfully against the conventions of the stage. It is a comedy with three female parts, six male, four acts, a landscape (view of the lake), lots of talk on literature, little action and tons of love.

PET PEEVE
Philowisdomizing

PHILOSOPHY
There ought to be a man with a hammer behind the door of every happy man.
