"This book is a treasure chest of brilliantly told and revealing anecdotes, about not only major writers like Tolstoy, Chekhov, and Gorky himself, but also fascinating lesser-known Russian writers, and a host of unforgettable characters - idealistic, desperate, grotesque, mad - from all levels of Russian life, whom Gorky recalled with extraordinary vividness and stylistic precision. It is an album of verbal snapshots which give the non-specialist reader like myself a real sense of what Russian society - not just literary life - was like during one of the most volatile periods of its history."
David Lodge, novelist, critic and Emeritus Professor of English Literature at the University of Birmingham, England
