Description
Edgar and Ellery Award–winning bookseller and publisher Otto Penzler once again breaks new ground in the mystery field with this omnibus of Russian fiction, with works by Boris Akunin, Anton Chekhov, Fyodor Dostoevsky, Nikolai Gogol, Maxim Gorky, Vil Lipitov, Vladimir Nabokov, Alexander Pushkin, Boris Sokoloff, and Leo Tolstoy. There have been few policemen and virtually no detectives or amateur sleuths in Russian history worthy of approbation, and our notion of a criminal trial is utterly alien there; consequently the literature is dramatically different from Western mysteries. But as Penzler proves here, their rare forays into the loosely defined genre of mystery fiction rank among the world's classics.
