Anton Chekhov - His own story!
This amazing Russian born author, well-known for his short fiction and wonderful novels, didn't have the best start in life. In 1876, while Anton was still at school Chekhov's father was declared Bankrupt and the family moved from Taganrog, Southern Russia to Moscow. Anton however remained for a further three years to complete his education and sell the families possessions. During this time he had to support himself and his family as well as pay for his education! He achieved this by catching and selling goldfinches, private tutoring and selling humorous sketches about contemporary Russian life to newspapers.
