Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Writing in the Times Literary Supplement in 1994, Russian writer Victor Erofeyev proclaimed Leonid Dobychin "one of the main heroes of twentieth-century Russian literature." Obscure for many years, Dobychin is now celebrated as a modernist master. His short stories are black-humored slices of life from the early days of the Soviet Union--subtle and tightly constructed miniatures linked by recurring themes and full of ironic juxtaposition, context, allusion, and style. For Dobychin early Soviet society was an absurdist wonderland.

About the Author

Leonid Dobychin was born in Dvinsk (today's Daugavpils), Latvia, in 1894. In 1936, shortly after the publication of his novel The Town of N, Dobychin was attacked by the Leningrad Writers' Union. He disappeared the next day and was never seen again.

Richard C. Borden is the author of The Art of Writing Badly: Valentin Kataev's Mauvism and the Rebirth of Russian Modernism (NUP 1999 ) and co-translator of Dobychin's The Town of N (1998), both published by Northwestern University Press. He lives in the United Kingdom.

Natalia Belova is also co-translator of Dobychin's The Town of N.
