San Francisco Chronicle with a Shout-Out for Short Stories and Selected Shorts

The San Francisco Chronicle‘s Barbara Lane listens to Selected Shorts’ production of Anton Chekhov’s 1887 short story “From the Diary of a Violent Tempered Man.” She says:

I laughed out loud and marveled at Chekhov’s brilliant handling of this dark comedy about a college student who gets sidetracked into a marriage he doesn’t want.

Not only was it as satisfying as a novel, but its impact stayed with me long after the earbuds came out.
