Chekhov’s Visit to USA

Anton Chekhov gives a reading at Barnes and Noble:

Throughout the day several people asked me why Chekov was doing his signing in a park. I gave everyone the same justification, “Well, I just represent Mr. Chekov in New York, so I don’t know his financial situation exactly, but between us, I’m pretty sure he is a millionaire. So he’s not doing this for money. He doesn’t make much off of his plays these days, anyway. Mr. Chekov didn’t want to deal with a big corporate chain store like Barnes and Noble. He just wants to meet his fans. What better way than to come right out to the park himself?”
