              Andrei Sinyavsky wrote Strolls with Pushkin while confined to a Soviet labor camp, smuggling the pages out a few at a time to his wife. His irreverent portrait outraged emigres and Soviet scholars alike, yet was meant only to rescue Pushkin. Anglophone readers who question the lo...ngstanding adoration for Pushkin felt by generations of Russians will enjoy tagging along on Sinyavsky's strolls with the great poet.

              Andrei Sinyavsky wrote In Gogol's Shadow in a Soviet labor camp. He challenges the view that Gogol was first and foremost a political writer, revealing a writer more obsessed with language than with politics. This irreverent and incisive analysis of Gogol's life and work is a pat...h-breaking exploration of literary creativity in times of strict censorship and ideological control.

              Fourteen Little Red Huts and Other Plays

              Fourteen Little Red Huts and Other Plays (Hardback)

              By Platonov, Andrei; Translated by Chandler, Robert; Larsen, Susan; Irwin, Jesse

              Andrei Platonov's plays The Hurdy-Gurdy and Fourteen Little Red Huts constitute an impassioned and penetrating response to Stalin's assault on the Soviet peasantry. They reflect the political urgency of Bertolt Brecht and anticipate the tragic farce of Samuel Beckett but play out... through dialogue and characterization that is unmistakably Russian. This volume also includes Grandmother's Little Hut, an unfinished play that represents Platonov's later, gentler work.

              Between Dog and Wolf, written in 1980, has long intimidated translators because of its complex puns, rhymes, and neologisms. Language rather than plot motivates the story-the novel is often compared to James Joyce's Finnegans Wake-and time, characters, and death all prove unstabl...e. The one constant is the Russian landscape.
