Night of Denial

by Ivan Bunin

Some months ago in this column, we praised Graham Hettlinger’s superb translations of Bunin (The Elagin Affair and Other Stories). This new collection, translated by Robert Bowie, is equally astonishing. And a much broader collection of the Nobel laureate’s work to boot. As if that were not enough, there are nearly 200 pages at the end of the volume with copious notes on the stories, a biographical afterword by Bowie, and a fun chapter, “On Translating Bunin.”

— Paul E. Richardson
