About the Author

Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky Joanne Turnbull

Sigizmund Dominikovich Krzhizhanovsky Russian February 11 O.S January 30 1887, Kiev, Russian Empire 28 December 1950, Moscow, USSR was a Russian and Soviet short story writer who described himself as being known for being unknown and the bulk of whose writings were published posthumously.Many details of Krzhizhanovsky s life are obscure Judging from his works, Robert Louis Stevenson, G K Chesterton, Edgar Allan Poe, Nikolai Gogol, E T A Hoffmann, and H G Wells were major influences on his style Krzhizhanovsky was active among Moscow s literati in the 1920s, while working for Alexander Tairov s Chamber Theater Several of Krzhizhanovsky s stories became known through private readings, and a couple of them even found their way to print In 1929 he penned a screenplay for Yakov Protazanov s acclaimed film The Feast of St Jorgen, yet his name did not appear in the credits One of his last novellas, Dymchaty bokal The smoky beaker, 1939 , tells the story of a goblet miraculously never running out of wine, sometimes interpreted as a wry allusion to the author s fondness for alcohol He died in Moscow, but the place where he was buried is not known.In 1976 the scholar Vadim Perelmuter discovered Krzhizhanovsky s archive and in 1989 published one of his short stories As the five volumes of his collected works followed the fifth volume has not yet reached publication , Krzhizhanovsky emerged from obscurity as a remarkable Soviet writer, who polished his prose to the verge of poetry His short parables, written with an abundance of poetic detail and wonderful fertility of invention though occasionally bordering on the whimsical are sometimes compared to the ficciones of Jorge Luis Borges Quadraturin 1926 , the best known of such phantasmagoric stories, is a Kafkaesque novella in which allegory meets existentialism Quadraturin is available in English translation in Russian Short Stories from Pushkin to Buida, Penguin Classics, 2005.

    Another collection of Krzhizhanovsky's blackly philosophic modernist fables, mostly from the 1920s. A couple of these also show up in Memories of the Future (the brilliant apartment claustrophobia horror story "Quadraturin" and "The Bookmark") but the others are all very worthwhile, particularly his biting dystopian energy crisis satire "Yellow Coal" and the weird story of physical and metaphysical striving-after-impossibility "The Unbitten Elbow". Plusm a dead man's account of the revolution an [...]

    Rarely do I read stories that make me feel I have been transported to deep within the mind of a genius and am experiencing a transformed reality.This is the case with Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky's Seven Stories. I'm grateful to GLAS, New Russian Writing for bringing out the first English translation of these fantastic, yet immensely grounded, tales. Krzhizhanovsky was an unsung hero who stayed true to his vision during repressive times. But these stories are about much more than a simple escape fro [...]

    Krzhizhanovsky deserves to be better known in this day and age, both inside Russia and outside in the greater sphere of literature. His short story collections are hard to track down but are all superb in the work that they show. This is only the second I have seen after Memories of the Future and it also doubles up containing 'Quadraturin' and 'The Bookmark' in both collections. So two of the seven short stories are contained in another collection which is a bit of a bummer. All his published w [...]

    Add a star if you are a writer and another if you understand parables and symbolic references to 1920s Stalinist Soviet Union. The inventive surrealism reminds me of Gogol.

    I think the only tragedy I encountered while reading this collection was the fact that I read it after reading 'The Violent Bear It Away,' which has become one of my foremost favorites. Although I didn't like 'The Bookmark' and 'Autobiography of a Corpse' all that much, I think 'Quadraturin,' 'In the Pupil,' and 'Yellow Coal' serve the price of admission. Before I speak about the stories that impressed me, I must make a confession about the stories that haven't. I think that a particular type of [...]

    Objectively, this is just as strong a collection as NYRB's Memories of the Future, which shares two of this volumes seven stories ["Quadraturin", "The Bookmark"]. If I had to suggest one collection out of the two, however, it wouldn't be this one: it's a little bit harder to find, and it could have used one last pass by the proofreader for the handful of typos and repeated words that lept out at me.

    I thought it was one of the more inventive collection of short stories I've read in a long time. He's an extremely clever writer who manages to make the surreal seem like an everyday occurrence that warrants little more than casual observation. The genius of the stories is in their simplicity. The writing style is so clear and not muddled with a lot of obvious "psychological over thinking" as to become laborious. I couldn't put it down and can't wait to read the other collections that are slowly [...]

    Funny, wry, self-reflexive, and all-around delightful.

    Krzhizhanovsky has the imagination of Kafka, the philosophical principles one would find from Borges and the intensity of a Russian author. Intelligent, humorous and surprising.
