My mistress is used to looking for novels by reading short reviews. The last novels were “Snow” by Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk and “1Q84” by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. Before reading these books, she didn’t really think that there were any references to Chekhov’s works. What a coincidence! Murakami writes that Chekhov is a trustworthy writer. My mistress confirms that it is true.
