Mikhail Zoshchenko was a popular leading Soviet satirist in the 1920s. Last month, we released the translation of Sentimental Tales, which are satirical portraits of small-town characters on the fringes of Soviet society in the first decade of Bolshevik rule. Translated by Boris Dralyuk, today we are happy to present you with the book’s introduction.
*Correction: A note on Zoschenko’s birthday.
