“The Russian literary heritage of the 1920’s and 1930’s continues to grow as significant works are uncovered that were long forgotten or never published. The most recent find is not a single work or author, but an entire literary movement―the Oberiu. . . . Professor Gibian’s book is most welcome . . .” ―Slavic Review

These bizarre and wildly imaginative pieces, written in Soviet Russia forty years ago, are as vital and disturbing as the best of today’s absurdist literature. Almost none of the works of Daniil Kharms and Alexander Vvedensky have been published before in any language.
