Summary

Anton Chekhov's 'The Collected Works' is a masterful compilation of the playwright's most famous plays, thought-provoking novellas, captivating short stories, personal diary entries, and heartfelt letters. Through his minimalist writing style and keen observation of human nature, Chekhov explores themes of love, loss, and the complexities of the human experience. His works are characterized by their profound insight into the human soul and the subtle nuances of everyday life in late 19th-century Russia, making them timeless classics in world literature. With a mix of humor, tragedy, and poignant moments, Chekhov's writing showcases his unique ability to capture the essence of the human condition in all its complexity. Anton Chekhov, a Russian playwright and short story writer, is renowned for his influential contributions to the literary world. His background as a physician imbued his writing with a deep understanding of human psychology, which is evident in the depth and authenticity of his characters. Chekhov's personal experiences and observations of society informed his writing, allowing him to create works that resonate with readers on a visceral level. I highly recommend 'The Collected Works of Anton Chekhov' to readers who appreciate thought-provoking literature that delves into the depths of human emotion and the complexities of existence. Chekhov's works are essential reading for anyone interested in exploring the intricacies of the human psyche and the universal themes that connect us all.

    Perfect for fans of the Emmy Award–winning series Downton Abbey, whose creator, Julian Fellowes, raved that Sisters of Fortune is “absolutely fascinating”—a real-life Jane Austen story, that follows the fabulous Caton sisters, the first American heiresses to take Europe by storm.Based on intimate and previously unpublished letters written by the sisters, this is a portrait of four lively and fashionable women in early nineteenth century America. Much of it is told in their own voices as they gossip about prominent people of their time, advise family members on political and financial strategy, soothe each other’s sorrows, and rejoice in each other’s triumphs. Descended from one of the nation’s founding fathers and raised to be educated, independent, and opinionated young women, Marianne, Bess, Louisa, and Emily Caton traveled to England in 1816 and won coveted places at the highest levels of Regency society by virtue of their charm, intelligence, and great beauty. An unusual, remarkable true story of money, love, and life at the top, Sisters of Fortune is a romantic family history and an inside look at the adventures of America’s original blue-blooded girls.

    The hysterical, shocking and incredibly intimate memoir from one of the most original and unique comedians alive today. 
    Hello! I’m Brian Limond, aka Limmy. You might know me from Limmy’s Show. Or you might not know me at all. Don’t worry if you don’t. 
    They asked me to write a book about mental health, because I sometimes talk about my mental health in tweets and interviews, like suicidal thoughts and anxiety, and what I’ve done to try and deal with it. 
    I said to them, oh, I don’t know if I could fill a whole book with just that. But how’s about I write a general autobiography type of thing, and all the mental health stuff will naturally appear along the way? I could talk about growing up and slashing my wrist and taking acid all the time and getting done for car theft and feeling like a mad freak that would never amount to anything. 
    And then how I made my own sketch show. I directed it and everything. Plus I’m a dad. I’m an adult. But I still feel like that mad freak from years ago. I still feel like chucking it all away, for a laugh. 
    I asked them if they wanted me to write about all that, plus some other stuff. Like being an alky. And my sexual problems. Stuff like that. 
    They said aye. 
    So here it is. 
    This bestseller is a raw and personal exploration of Limmy's life, filled with humour and surprising revelations. It's a Sunday Times bestselling book that has resonated with thousands of readers, making it a top pick in memoirs and popular British culture. 
    For fans of James Acaster (James Acaster's Guide to Quitting Social Media), Jon Ronson (Frank), Louis Theroux (Theroux The Keyhole), Lizzy Goodman (Meet Me in the Bathroom), and Lou Sanders (What's That Lady Doing?).

    Birth control. Body hair removal cream. Boobs. It’s all weird, but also pretty normal. 
    Navigating racial identity, gender roles, workplace dynamics, and beauty standards, Mia Mercado's hilarious essay collection explores the contradictions of being a millennial woman, which usually means being kind of a weirdo. Whether it’s spending $30 on a candle that smells like an ocean that doesn’t exist, offering advice on how to ask about someone’s race (spoiler: just don’t, please?), quitting a job that makes you need shots of whiskey on your lunch break, or finding a more religious experience in the skincare aisle at Target than your hometown Catholic church, Mia brilliantly unpacks what it means to be a professional, absurdly beautiful, horny, cute, gross human. Essays include: 
    •     Depression Isn’t a Competition but Why Aren’t I Winning? 
    •     My Dog Explains My Weekly Schedule 
    •     Mustache Lady 
    •     White Friend Confessional 
    •     Treating Objects Like Women 
    With sharp humor and wit, Mia shares the awkward, uncomfortable, surprisingly ordinary parts of life, and shows us why it’s strange to feel fine and fine to feel strange.

    Winning came naturally to Al Unser Jr. Born into a racing family, he had a gift for finding the fast line on the track. By the time he was nine years old, he could draw the quickest way through the corner on paper and intuitively apply his sketch while on the go kart track. By his teen years, the innate sense for the fast way made him unstoppably quick when he was racing through the woods on a snowmobile. 
    As his career progressed from the kart track victories to following in the footsteps of his famed uncle, Bobby, and father, Al, the wins grew in stature from junior titles to the very top echelon of his sport. Two Indy 500 victories. An IndyCar championship. Sportsman of the Year. 
    In addition, Unser was not just a winning driver—he also possessed a boisterous and lovable personality. The fans and the press adored him. 
    Al Unser Jr. was on the top of world. 
     A Checkered Past tells that story—but it doesn’t stop there. 
    His gifts as a driver and his easy affability were the public persona. Behind the scenes, his appetite for drugs and alcohol were destroying his private life. Spurred on by his spiraling substance abuse problem, his marriage turned volatile. When he retired as a driver, the trouble amplified. Domestic violence arrests. Multiple DUIs. Repeated visits to rehab centers. Divorce. Financial ruin. A dark dive into depression and isolation that led to a suicide attempt. 
    Unser’s battle to climb out of that cave is one of the great stories in motorsports. A Checkered Past is an unblinking look at how even our most celebrated sports heroes struggle with human frailty. 
    Turn the page, and you’ll discover an inspirational story of triumph, tragedy, and the road to recovery.
