I don't really get this sort of writing. I guess the idea is to paint a scene, a certain mood surrounding a certain type of personality or situation, but the result just depresses me.Descriptions of everyday misery I find hard to bear even when the situation is resolved, as in more standard stories or novels, but when all we are given is a snapshot of some unhappiness snipped out of time, the results just upset me too much. I think no more Chekhov for me.
