Catalog Number: 20150731

Describing herself as a latecomer to writing, author Catherine Browder discusses her new book, Now We Can All Go Home, which pays tribute to Anton Chekhov and three of his plays, Uncle Vanya, Three Sisters, and The Seagull. In this book, Browder picks up the lives of Chekov's beloved characters and continues their stories through three novellas. Browder, who is also a playwright, talks about why she chose to write these as fiction rather than plays, and discusses her inspiration for Now We Can All Go Home: Three Novellas in Homage to Chekhov.
