Sixty-five luminous satirical tales, from Òa writer who recorded, with unfailing style and wit, an eraÕs troubles and a peopleÕs voice.Ó (Los Angeles Times) In his prime, satirist Mikhail Zoshchenko was more widely read in the Soviet Union than either Pasternak or Solzhenitsyn. His stories give expression to the experience of the ordinary Soviet citizen struggling to survive in the 1920s and Õ30s, beset by an acute housing shortage, ubiquitous theft and corruption, and the impenetrable new language of the Soviet state. Written in the semi-educated talk of the man or woman on the street, these stories enshrine one of the greatest achievements of the people of the Soviet UnionÑtheir gallows humor. In The Galosh, Zoshchenko, the self-described Òtemporary substitute for the proletarian writer,Ó combines wicked satire with an earthy empathy and a brilliance that places him squarely in the classic Russian comic tradition. Translated from the Russian by Jeremy Hicks.
