Eighteen strange, whimsical, and philosophical tales by the Russian master of the weird, all now in English for the very first time.

About the Author

Joanne Turnbull's translations from Russian include Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky's The Letter Killers Club, Autobiography of a Corpse, Memories of the Future, and The Return of Munchausen, all published by NYRB Classics. She lives in Moscow.


"These philosophical, melancholic, darkly funny tales merit a place beside those of Kafka, Borges, and Calvino." --Kirkus, starred review

"This collection . . . mixes playful and morose tones in stories of the kooky and the condemned . . . clever and satirical in his descriptions, Krzhizhanovsky is at his best when finding levity in grave revelations." --Publishers Weekly "Krzhizhanovsky found his definitive English voice in the Moscow-based translator Joanne Turnbull. . . . Turnbull has co-created Krzhizhanovsky's best phantasmagorical modernist fictions in paperbacks published by New York Review Books." --Caryl Emerson
