A Place Bewitched and Other Stories (riverrun editions) Summary

A Place Bewitched and Other Stories (riverrun editions): a beautiful new edition of Gogol's short fiction, translated by Constance Garnett by Constance Garnett

A wounded solider vanishes into notoriety.

A nose is found in a loaf of bread.

Places - like the Nevesky Prospect - are not what they seem.

Nikolai Gogol was one of the nineteenth century's greatest and most influential Russian writers, a realist whose witty and acerbic observations and his taste for the absurd give his writing its strange, comic voice.

Selected from the work of Constance Garnett, one of Gogol's earliest translators, this edition presents a new, exclusive collection of Gogol's short fiction, selected and lightly revised by Natasha Randall. Contextualized by Randall's preface, and full of the wit of Garenett's work, this edition is the perfect introduction to Gogol, and a must for the enthusiast.
