It is a rather tedious read as the other readers described. The minutiae of Chekhov's many relationships and the Access Hollywood take on who was hot on the Russian literary landscape is excessive. It is a biography, however, and an expansive one at that. Nonetheless, the mass of letters quoted in the book is an extremely pathetic look into the life of a family of Russians in the beginning of the XX c., the strife, the misery, the sorrows. It is dreadful and moving at once.
