STROLLS WITH PUSHKIN by Abram Tertz
Released: Feb. 16, 1994

"Read Tertz before the long essay by co-translator Nepomnyashchy."
Fabulously amusing mock-academic flight of fantastic literary criticism about Russia's beloved national poet, Aleksandr Pushkin, written in 1966-67 by Tertz/Andrei Sinyavsky (Goodnight!, 1989; Little Jinx, 1992, etc.) while serving the first of seven years in a Soviet labor camp.

LITTLE JINX by Abram Tertz
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Aug. 1, 1992

"Gentler in its satire than the stories and essays that got Tertz five years in a Soviet labor camp: as winsomely, tearfully loony as the Gogol tales it recalls."
A painfully funny parable of loneliness, alienation, and crippling guilt by the ÇmigrÇ author of, among others, Soviet Civilization (1990) and the novel Goodnight! (1989). Read full book review >
