About the Author

Andrei Sergeev (1933-1998) writer and poet, a professional numismatist, was better known as a translator of Robert Frost, Sandberg, T.S.Eliot, Ezra Pound, Robert Lowell, Sylvia Platt, Oden, Allen Ginsberg, to name a few. His excellent translations made a strong impact on the development of Russian poetry at the time. In the 1950s Sergeev belonged to the first literary underground group, which invented samizdat, that is, hand-production and dissemination of banned books. Only in the early 1990s he first published his stories and then Stamp Album, which immediately won the acclaim of readers and critics alike as well as the most prestigious literary prize in Russia: the Russian Booker.A professional translator of English and American literature, Sergeev appears in English translation for the first time.

Reviews

"A true master of time, Sergeyev will always be absolutely contemporary. He stands alone." "--Novoye Literaturnoye Obozreniye""I value Sergeev's opinion exceedingly, I would even say that Sergeev's opinion of my poems has always been more important to me than anything on earth: If there existed some higher or last judgment for me in matters of poetry, then it was Sergeev's opinion." --Joseph Brodsky ""Stamp Album" paints a picture of a huge and not yet explored 'catacomb Russia'. The communal apartment he describes is not at all a typical community of Soviet citizens. They do not fight the regime, nor do they adapt to it. Sergeyev's memory seems to collect mere trifles: children's ditties, counting rhymes, old slogans, newspaper clippings, snatches of conversations, official documents, urban folklore and much else. He fishes various fragments out of this detritus and files them carefully away in his stamp album." --"Russkaya Mysl" "Extraordinary memory, the firm grasp of a professional collector, fantastic 'short-sighted' sharpness of vision, a passion for details and objects as well as individuals - all these make Stamp Album fascinating reading." --"Russian Journal" ""Stamp Album paints a picture of a huge and not yet explored 'catacomb Russia'.
