Synopsis: After a lifetime of persecution Andrey Platonov (1899-1951) has emerged as one of the greatest Russian writers of the century, an artist of profound genius, integrity, and clarity of vision. His distinctive writing style has long defied translation. Joseph Brodsky looked on him as the equal of Joyce, Kafka, and Proust. This collection includes representative facets of Platanov’s genius, his play Fourteen Red Huts, folktales, and his story “Among Animals and Plants.” Praise for The Foundation Pit: “A story as gripping as anything in Dickens, as moving and as artful.”—John Bailey, Times Literary Supplement.

About the Author: After a lifetime of persecution Andrei Platonov (1899-1951) has emerged as one of the greatest writers of this century, an artist of profound genius, integrity and clarity of vision. Today he is venerated in Russia, and his major novels, Chevengur and The Foundation Pit, have been published in numerous editions. His influence on contemporary Russian writing is enormous, and he marked a new era in Russian literature, his language and style being so distinctive that for a long time his work defied translation. Platonov vividly presents the dreams of the builders of socialism in all their inarticulate confusion, with a sympathy not lessened by an unparalleled awareness of their tragic consequences. Joseph Brodsky looked on him as the equal of Joyce, Kafka and Proust.
