The letters of Anton Chekhov, like those of Flaubert, are astonishing in their immense range and in their literary quality. Beginning in 1885, when he was twenty-five, and ending with his death less than twenty years later, the correspondence testifies to an extraordinary career. Chekhov was not only a writer but a critic, a doctor, a traveler, a devoted lover and brother.

Kažu da ima čitavih osam knjiga u kojima su štampana sačuvana Čehovljeva pisma (a ima ih preko 4200). U ovo knjizi ima ih 157, sasvim dovoljno da se oseti plemenitost čoveka Antona Pavloviča Čehova, lekara i književnika. Sada imam želju da pročitam i ostala njegova pisma :)
