Publisher's Description

Five tragicomic tales from the visionary writer heralded by Vladimir Nabokov as "the greatest artist that Russia has yet produced"
 
A midlevel bureaucrat in the czar’s administration, Poprishchin is hurrying to work when he sees a woman step out of a carriage. Her beauty astounds him, and as she passes by, he hears something impossible: Her dog opens its mouth, and begins to speak. It is Poprishchin’s first step on the road to insanity, a journey that will take him into the depths of hell—and raise him up to the heights of emperors and kings.
 
"Memoirs of a Madman" is one of Nikolai Gogol’s definitive short works, a satire of the excesses of czarist bureaucracy told with wit, empathy, and his signature blend of the real and surreal. Other highlights in this indispensable volume include the haunting title story and "The Nose," an absurdist masterpiece.
 
This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.
 

Author Bio

Nikolai Vasilievich Gogol (1809–1852) was one of nineteenth-century Russia’s greatest writers and a profound influence on Leo Tolstoy, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Mikhail Bulgakov, Vladimir Nabokov, and countless other authors. His best-known works include the novel Dead Souls (1842) and the stories "The Overcoat," "The Nose," and "Memoirs of a Madman." In 1852, he burned most of his manuscripts, including the second part of Dead Souls. He died nine days later.
