Boris Pilnyak is the author of The Naked Year, Mahogany (also published by Ardis), and The Volga Falls to the Caspian Sea. In 1937 he was arrested on charges of counter-revolutionary activities, spying, and terrorism. He was tried on April 21, 1938 (in a proceeding that lasted 15 minutes) and condemned to death.Review:
"Pilniak's anti-novel The Naked Year...was one of the earliest and most prominent large-scale attempts to create a paradigm of ‘the new prose' about the Revolution. A self-consciously experimental, openly modernist work." --The Cambridge Companion to Twentieth-Century Russian Literature
