All things pass - is this your philosophy? Is there no room for love in your philosophy of life? Renowned and best-selling novelist William Boyd, CBE, adapts two Chekhov short stories, A Visit to Friends and My Life, to weave a comic tale about nineteenth-century Russian provincial life, both familiar and unfamiliar. When Kolia is invited to visit his oldest friends on their Estate in the country he anticipates a pleasant break from Moscow life. But as the comedy of provincial life plays out around him, he finds himself adrift in a miasma of false expectations, missed opportunities, and unspoken passions.
William Boyd is the author of eleven novels, including Waiting for Sunrise. He has won the Whitbread Award; the Somerset Maugham Award; the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize; the James Tait Black Memorial Prize; the Prix Jean Monnet and the Costa Novel of the Year award. An adaptation of his novel Restless has been produced for the BBC. Longing is his first play.
