9780140448467: Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida

From the reign of the Tsars in the early 19th century to the collapse of the Soviet Union and beyond, the short story has long occupied a central place in Russian culture. Included are pieces from many of the acknowledged masters of Russian literature - including Pushkin, Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, and Solzhenitsyn - alongside tales by long-suppressed figures such as the subversive Kryzhanowsky and the surrealist Shalamov. Whether written in reaction to the cruelty of the bourgeoisie, the bureaucracy of communism or the torture of the prison camps, they offer a wonderfully wide-ranging and exciting representation of one of the most vital and enduring forms of Russian literature.

Review:

A smartly executed bid by editor and co-translator Robert Chandler to broaden our view of Russian literature and life. -- Boyd Tonkin in The Independent, June 18, 2005

As one might expect from one of UK's leading translators, his translations (...) are both accurate and highly readable, -- Michael Pursglove in The East-West Journal, Autumn 2005

This entirely authoritative and marvellous collection -- George Szirtes in The Guardian, Sept 24, 2005
