Praise

Honorable Mention, Read Russia Prize for the best translation of Russian literature into English

“A brilliant, poignant anthology.” 
—Alexis Levitin, Los Angeles Review of Books
 
“Ably translated … Bryan Karetnyk has produced that most welcome artefact in this age of the floating text: an ‘enhanced’ paperback whose fictive stories are fully equipped with their histories. Writers’ biographies, historical chronology, a list of Russian émigré venues, and well-researched footnotes serve to anchor each narrative in its own peripatetic time and space.”
—Caryl Emerson, TLS
 
“Compelling … Karetnyk’s anthology transports the reader into the motley lives and imaginations of Russian émigrés in Paris, Berlin and beyond. Highly recommended reading for anyone fascinated by prerevolutionary Russian culture as preserved among the ranks of the two million-odd Whites that formed the first wave of emigration from Bolshevik Russia.”
—Anna Gunin, The Riveter
 
“A powerful reminder of the trauma of civil war and hardships of displacement … The stories evoke a lost world with attendant nostalgia, sorrow, fear and anger … Rarely has the term ‘unjustly neglected’ rung more true.”
Country Life

“A rich anthology . . . Editor and lead translator Bryan Karetnyk has done a marvelous job of selecting authors and works in order to present a snapshot of the very large literary output of the emigration. . . . The translations . . . maintain a high standard of literary quality and precision. Admirably equipped with biographical and explanatory notes, this anthology presents to the Anglophone reader, for the first time, a unified representation of the authors and disparate, yet interlinked cultural contexts of first-wave Russian emigration.” —Judges’ citation, Read Russia Prize (honorable mention)
