New Yorker editor Ben Greenman inserts celebrities into the stories of Anton Chekhov.

“The newest book by the New Yorker editor and author Ben Greenman, Celebrity Chekhov (Harper Perennial), takes the classic stories of Anton Chekhov and inserts contemporary American celebrities.

It should be stressed that every word of the story is fiction, including “and,” “the,” and “thrash.”
