Review:

'Kharms's work is exhilarating ... We're reminded that narrative is not life, but a trick a writer does with language to make beauty' -- George Saunders, New York Times Book Review. 'Kharms's playful and poetic work ... [draws] critical comparisons to Beckett, Camus, and Ionesco' --New Yorker

'A dazzling book that gives me new hope for an avant garde writing that speaks to a larger audience' --Times Literary Supplement

'[Kharms's] enigmatic blend of laughter and violence will shock, delight and baffle' --Guardian

About the Author:

Daniil Kharms (1905-1942) was born in St. Petersburg and grew up amidst the Bolshevik revolution. As a young man, he became well known, along with other writers in the OBERIU movement he founded, as an eccentric poet and performer of the early Soviet literary scene. He died of starvation incarcerated by the state on suspicion of Anti-Soviet activities. Matvei Yankelevich is a founding editor of Ugly Duckling Press. His translations and writings have appeared in numerous publications and anthologies. He teaches at Hunter College in New York City.
