Promotional Information

Never before published in English, The Return of Munchausen is an imaginative update on the legend of the eponymous baron by one of Russia's most celebrated and innovative authors.

About the Author

Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky (1887-1950) studied law and classical philology at Kiev University. His two story collections, Autobiography of a Corpse and Memories of the Future, and his novel, The Letter Killers Club, are available as NYRB Classics. Joanne Turnbull has translated a number of books from the Russian, including Krzhizhanovsky's Autobiography of a Corpse, Memories of the Future, and The Letter Killers Club (all available as NYRB Classics). She lives in Moscow.


"Playful and erudite, sprinkled with philosophy and politics, funny in places and melancholy in others, this novella, like most of Krzhizhanovsky's work, remained unpublished during his lifetime; how lucky that we can read it now." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

"For all Krzhizhanovsky's avant-garde bona fides, few authors speak more honestly about the power great literature can exert on a reader and on its creator." --Scott Esposito, The National
