Penguin Twentieth-Century Classics. She was, in fact, Gorky’s closest friend and the epic heroine of a book swarming with characters and with the sensations of a curious and often frightened little boy. In this autobiography, Quentin Crisp describes his unhappy childhood and the stresses of adolescence that led him to London. There in bedsits and cafes he found a world of brutality and comedy, of shortlived jobs and precarious relationships. Coloured by poverty and horrifying brutality, Gorky’s childhood equipped him to understand - in a way denied to a Tolstoy or a Turgenev - the life of the ordinary Russian.

Indispensable. If you have use for samizdat, great writing, or all those tales of Russia you'd love to read again, Buy this book.

Typically I don't like these portable readers, especially when it comes to tying many authors, styles, and works together, but this one feels like the only chance you'll have at reading so many brilliant voices. The writers and their stories are just heartbreaking.

Olesha's Envy alone is enough to bring anyone to tears.

Enjoyed every one of these selections.

I used this collection for a class in Russian Fiction. Generally it is a fine collection of decent translations, but you could wish for more. It should be noted, a good deal of these texts can be found online, for free. But, for the interested beginner in Russian Literature, this will keep you busy, though I prefer earlier Russian Lit personally.

This book has so much in it, its wonderful! we used it all semester long and I really enjoyed a lot of it!

I took a survey course in Russsian literature back in 2001 and I appreciated this most of all the books we used.

The reason is that for many of us starting out in Russian literature, the 20th century contains many more authors and works than the 19th that we hadn't heard of and didn't know exist.

And sure enough even some of the more obscure and shorter works of, for example, Klebnikov, Sinyavsky, Blok or Zoshchenko turn out to be vibrant, well written, highly relevant and highly original.

In short this is a great resource for discovering Russian literature and also turns out to be a good way to get ahold of some pieces that aren't all that easy to find.

I bought this book for a course in Russian short fiction, and two years later I still find myself coming back to it. There are many great examples of Soviet and pre-Soviet writing in this anthology, the complete text of Olesha's novella "Envy", as well as some excerpts from longer works like "The Master and Margarita" and "Dr. Zhivago".

True to the Russian literary tradition, most of the pieces occupy a bizarre liminal space between incredibly funny and incredibly disturbing. The author I'm most grateful for having been introduced to through this volume is Danill Kharms, an absurdist writer from the early Soviet era. His "Anecdotes about Pushkin's Life" mocks the kind of hero worship prevelant in the literary world by presenting a series of ridiculous one-paragraph stories that make little to no sense, but are quite funny.

Other highlights in this book include Zamayatin's (authour of "We") "The Cave", Babel's "My First Goose", Platonov's "The Potudan River", Zoshchenko's bureaucratic allegory "Bees and People", Gorky's "Recollections of Leo Tolstoy", and Shalamov's Gulag horror story "Lend Lease".

This book is well worth getting, and you'll find yourself returning to it over and over again, each time finding something new.
