"The Lady with the Dog" (also known as "The Lady with the Little Dog" and "The Lady with the Lapdog") is one of Chekhov's most famous short stories. . . . It is about an extramarital affair that turns into something much more. . . . . If you have never read Chekhov before, it's an excellent gateway drug.
