Russian Emigre Short Stories from Bunin to Yanovsky

€14,95

Fleeing amid the chaos of the 1917 revolutions and subsequent Civil War, many Russian writers went on to settle in Paris, Berlin and elsewhere. In exile, they worked as taxi drivers, labourers and film extras, and wrote some of the most brilliant and imaginative works of Russian literature. This new collection includes stories by the most famous émigré writers, such as Vladimir Nabokov and Ivan Bunin, and introduces powerful lesser known voices, some of whom have never been available in English before. Exploring displacement, loss and new beginnings, these pieces also return obsessively to the Russia that has been left behind - whether as dream or nightmare.
