Some of the most well known masterpieces of 19th century and earlier such as the novels of Dostoyevsky, Checkov

He is currently working on William Boyd's Longing - an adaptation of Anton Checkov
short stories - alongside Tamsin Greig and John Sessions.
They seized 175 bottles of spirits from seven off-licences including Danoff vodka, High Commissioner scotch whisky and Checkov
and Glens vodka.

Austrian owners Stall Christ- Lacke are trying to buy Anton Checkov
and he likely to end up with trainer Uwe Ostmann.
