A man lives in a tiny apartment, engulfed in the noise of his neighbors' lives, squeezed in among his few possessions, hardly able to move. A mysterious figure turns up at his door, offering a tube of a substance that will, he assures our hero, allow him to enlarge"biggerize"his living space. "Why not?"but clumsily he spills the stuff on the floor. When he wakes the next morning his apartment has begun to grow exponentially, and with it his troubles. What if people find out? He'll lose his apartment. He must keep everyone at bay, stay to himself. Meanwhile his furniture drifts into the distance. He is lost in the infinitely expanding space of his own loneliness. Thus "Quadraturin" is a story as memorable as any by Poe or Kafka or Borges or Stanislaw Lemauthors that the mysterious Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky, mathematician, philosopher, experimental realist, might be said to resemble if he were not, in fact, utterly, brilliantlysui generis. Unpublished in his lifetime, Krzhizhanovsky's work came to light in the Soviet state archives after the fall of communism, revealing a writer of prodigious gifts.Memories of the Futureis the first English-language collection of this newly discovered modern master.

Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky(1887—1950) was an ethnically Polish Ukrainian-born short-story writer whose work was largely unpublished, though he was active among Moscow’s literati in the 1920s. He died in Moscow but his burial site is unknown. Joanne Turnbullhas translated a number of books from Russian, including Andrei Sinyavsky’sSoviet CivilizationandIvan the Fool, Asar Eppel’sThe Grassy Street, and Andrei Sergeyev’sStamp Album. She lives in Moscow.
