Synopsis:

This work is a comprehensive collection of Russian absurdist Daniil Kharms' prose and poetry. Daniil Kharms has long been heralded as one of the most iconoclastic writers of the Soviet era, but the full breadth of his achievement is only in recent years, following the opening of Kharms' archives, being recognised internationally. A master of formally inventive poetry and what today would be called 'micro-fiction', Kharms built off the legacy of Russian Futurist writers to create a uniquely deadpan style written out of - and in spite of - the absurdities of life in Stalinist Russia. Featuring the acclaimed novella "The Old Woman", and darkly humorous short prose sequence "Events", "Today I Wrote Nothing" also includes dozens of short prose pieces, plays, and poems long admired in Russia, but never before available in English until now.
