The Dovlatov Collection

By Sergei Dovlatov

Translated by Anne Frydman, Antonina W. Bouis and Katya Dovlatova

RRP: £27.97 £13.99

New for Autumn 2018, these three beautiful new editions of Dovlatov’s masterpieces are once again available. Including:

Pushkin Hills
Populated with unforgettable characters, such as Alikhanov’s fellow guides Mitrofanov and Pototsky and the KGB officer Belyaev, and presented here for the first time in the English language, Pushkin Hills is arguably Dovlatov’s most personal work and a poignant portrayal of the Russian attitude towards life and art.

The Suitcase
Imbued with a comic nostalgia and overlaid with Dovlatov’s characteristically dark-edged humour and wry power of observation, The Suitcase is a profoundly human, delightfully ironic novel from one of the finest satirists of the twentieth century.

The Zone
A priceless chronicle of its time which highlights universal themes, Dovlatov’s genre-defying novel also provides moments of high entertainment and humour, rendered in his characteristically sharp, concise and sardonic style.

Sergei Dovlatov

Born to an Armenian mother and a Jewish father, Sergei Dovlatov (1941–90) grew up in Leningrad. Because of his writings, which he could not publish in Russia, he was persecuted by the authorities, and ultimately forced into exile in the US, where he developed his talent as a comic writer. Since his death in 1990, Dovlatov has become one of the most popular and widely read authors in Russia.
