Synopsis:

“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.

About the Author: George Gibian was Goldwin Smith Professor of Russian and Comparative Literature at Cornell University. His honors include Fulbright, Guggenheim, American Philosophical Society, and Rockefeller Foundation fellowships. He was the author of The Man in the Black Coat: Russia’s Lost Literature of the Absurd, The Interval of Freedom: Russian Literature During the Thaw, and Tolstoj and Shakespeare. He was the editor of the Norton Critical Editions of Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina and War and Peace, and Gogol’s Dead Souls, and of the Viking Penguin Portable Nineteenth-Century Russian Reader. Professor Gibian’s articles have appeared in the Wall Street Journal, The New Republic, the Christian Science Monitor, and Newsday, among others.
