Collected here are Gogol's finest tales - from the demon-haunted St John's Eve to the strange surrealism of The Nose, from the heartrending trials of the copyist in The Overcoat to those of the delusional clerk in The Diary of a Madman - allowing readers to experience anew the unmistakable genius of a writer who paved the way for Dostoevsky and Kafka. To this superb new translation - the first in twenty five years and destined to become the definitive edition of Gogol's short fiction - Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky bring the same clarity and fidelity to the original that they brought to their brilliant translation of Dostoevsky's works.

"When, as in his immortal 'The Overcoat,' [Gogol] really let himself go and pottered happily on the brink of his private abyss, he became the greatest artist that Russia has yet produced."
Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852) was one of the masters of 19th Century Russian literature, and was the author of numerous stories and a novel, Dead Souls. Together, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky have translated Dostoevsky's Dead Souls, Crime and Punishment, Notes from Underground, Demons and The Brothers Karamazov, for which they were awarded the PEN Book-of-the-Month Club Translation Prize. Their translation of Dostoevsky's The Idiot is also published by Granta Books.
