Wydaje mi się, że chodzi o polską, dość krótką książkę Początki i końce, gdzie esej o Czechowie, Dostojewskim i później Bierdiajewie są razem. Jest tam jeden z bardziej wnikliwych esejów o Czechowie (na tle Bunina i esejów zebranych przez Śliwowskiego) jakie znam, choć wątek uczuć miłosnych Czechowa i u Czechowa specjalnie, imho, zepchnięty jest na dalszy plan. Doskonałe uwagi o darze proroczym Dostojewskiego ("skoro ktoś może być prorokiem, czy Chrystusem, to i on może być").
