Elizabeth Chandler is a co-translator, with her husband, of Pushkin’s The Captain’s Daughter; of Vasily Grossman’s Everything Flows and The Road; and of several volumes of Andrey Platonov: The Return, The Portable Platonov, Happy Moscow, and Soul.
Vasily Grossman wrote not only one of the great Russian novels of the 20th-century (Life and Fate), but also vivid reportage, moving essays, and brilliant travel journals. This account of two months he spent in Armenia in the mid-60s is the most intimate of his works. Suppressed during his life, it is here available in English for the first time.
Grossmans Life and Fate has been called the War and Peace of WWII, and his war reporting considered among the most important from the field. The Road brings together Grossmans best untranslated fiction and nonfiction, including The Hell of Treblinka, one of the very first journalistic dispatches from inside a concentration camp.
