Leskov's stories of Russian life are explosions of imagination.
Peopled by outsized characters including serfs, princes, Gypsy girls, horse dealers, nomadic Tartars and garrulous storytellers, Leskov's writing exuberantly fables the national character of his age.
For the first time, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky's translation brings Leskov's original storytelling and irresistible voice to life.
