Description
In his prime, Mikhail Zoshchenko (1894–1958) was more widely read in his own country than Boris Pasternak or Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. His short stories give expression to the bewildered experiences of the ordinary Soviet citizen struggling to survive in the 1920s and 30s, beset by an acute housing shortage and scarcity of consumer goods, ubiquitous theft and corruption, and an impenetrable new ideological language. Written in the semi-educated language of the man and woman in the street, they enshrine one of the greatest achievements of the people of the Soviet Union—their gallows humor. Jeremy Hicks' translations of these 65 stories reveal Zoshchenko's comic subtlety.
