Ha, Ha, It's Chekhov

"[Chekhov] began as a comic writer of short stories and then got serious. In the theater it was the other way round — he started with serious plays, had no success, then started to write short comedies like ‘The Bear’ and ‘The Proposal,’ and then turned serious...He began as a comic writer and ended as a comic writer.”

- Author and playwright Michael Frayn
