Europe/ Russia & Eastern Europe

Translated from Russian by Arch Tait.

Set during the last days of the Communist period, Baize-Covered Table With Decanter springs from an intense and intrusive bureaucratic investigation, that staple of the old Soviet system and even older Russian police state. This naked, fable-like story is as timeless and revealing as a nightmare.

"Glasnost," says THE OBSERVER, "revealed Makanin as one of the major writers of his generation."

"An outstanding work of Russian prose."
