Translated by Laura Michael and John Givens
Foreword by Kathleen Parthé
"Shukshin will not die. After 30 years, these stories have come to us with an excellent introduction by John Givens to go with his and Laura Michael's translation."—Martin Cruz Smith, Los Angeles Times Book Review
"A generous collection of 25 stories by the popular and charismatic Russian author."—Kirkus Reviews
"Shukshin excels in the short story.... A wonderful collection."—Library Journal
A cultural phenomenon in his day—an award-winning film director and actor who also wrote novels, plays, and movie scripts—Vasily Shukshin (1929–1974) is renowned for his mastery of the short story. Credited with revitalizing the short story as a genre in Russian literature, he was posthumously honored with the Soviet Union's highest literary prize following his untimely death at the age of forty-five.
