Annotation

"The Gift" is the phantasmal autobiography of Fyodor Godunov- Cherdynstev, a writer living in the closed world of Russian emigre intellectuals in Berlin shortly after World War I.

Publisher Description

THE GIFT is the phantasmal autobiography of Fyodor Godunov-Cherdynstev, a writer living in the closed world of Russian intellectuals in Berlin shortly after the First World War. This gorgeous tapesty of literature and butterflies tells the story of Fyodor's pursuits as a writer. Its heroine is not Fyodor's elusive and beloved Zina, however, but Russian prose and poetry itself.

Between 1923 and 1940 he published novels, short stories, plays, poems and translations in the Russian language and established himself as one of the most outstanding Russian emigre writers. He died in 1977.
