5.0 out of 5 stars Vividly presents many facets of a great writer, 25 Aug 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Portable Platonov: For the Centenary of Andrei Platonov's Birth (Glas: New Russian Writing) (Paperback)
Platonov is commonly thought of as the finest Russian prose-writer of this century. This volume, published on the centenary of his birth, presents many aspects of his extraordinary work: the play, "Fourteen Little Red Huts", a viciously satirical blend of Brecht and Beckett written in the early thirties; three chapters of 'Chevengur', Platonov's great 'lyrico-satirical' novel about a misguided attempt to set up Communism in a remote town in the steppe; 'Among Animals and Plants', a moving story about a railway worker in the North of Russia who imagines that utopia has been realized in the Soviet Union - everywhere except in his own remote hamlet; previously unpublished excerpts from the short novel 'The Foundation Pit'; and two fine adaptations of Russian folk-tales written in 1946, when Platonov was no longer able to publish original work.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really pleased I came across this and would recommend it to all who have experienced this author. Do recommend to anyone who has not read Platonove before. Robert Chandler has done a really good job in presenting these works.
