Twelve Stories of Russia: A Novel, I Guess

Cow Eye Press, 2017. Paperback. When an eager American moves to Moscow to teach Russians the difference between the and a, he begins what will become an eventful six-and-a-half-year descent into the murky entrails of language, culture, and the world's greatest metro system. Part surrealistic travelogue, part historical serendipity, Twelve Stories is at its most enduring as a fanciful rumination on the elusiveness of words. Twelve Stories of Russia was originally published in Moscow by the independent publisher GLAS, where it quietly gained a following among expats and locals alike. Unique in its appeal to both sides of the linguistic and cultural divide, the work has remained largely unknown beyond Russia. Now, almost a generation after its narrator's lively quest for the word that changes and is changed, this emphatic "novel, I guess" is being released to a wider audience for the first time, its subject matter as universal and its themes as timely as ever. | 152 x 229 x 24mm | 608g | 416 pages.
