IVAN R DEE Incorporated, 2002 - Fiction - 190 pages
6 Reviews
The Gentleman from San Francisco is easily the best known of Ivan Bunin s stories and has achieved the stature of a masterpiece. But Bunin s other stories are not to be missed. In Sunstroke, Graham Hettlinger has selected the Gentleman and twenty-four other stories and translated them afresh several for the first time in English. The result is a collection that is remarkable in its crystalline prose, surprising in its vibrancy. It includes, among others, Raven, Cold Fall, Muza, Styopa, Antigone, In Paris, and Late Hour. Never has the last of the great gentry writers and the first Russian to win the Nobel Prize for Literature received a more caring and passionate translation. Sunstroke confirms Bunin s stature as one of the greatest and most neglected Russian writers of the twentieth century.
