Today I Wrote Nothing: The Selected Writings of Daniil Kharms

by: Daniil Kharms

Publisher: Abrams (2007)


Staff Pick by comrade: PM

Kharms paints very real snapshots of Soviet life - and then shatters them with the absurd and impossible. The translator, Yankelevich, provides the context for a deeper view of Kharms' avant garde short fiction. Highly recommended!
