The Man with the Black Coat: Russia's Literature of the Absurd by Daniil Kharms and Alexander Vvedenskiĭ

| /

This book brings together works by two of the outstanding talents of Soviet literature, Daniil Kharms and Alexander Vvedensky. It discloses a little-known tradition of absurdism that persisted during the Stalinist period, a testimony to both the hardiness of the Russian imagination in the face of socialist realism and the vitality of an important cultural and literary tradition.
