Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Viewed by some as a major 20th-century voice, by others as a backward-looking aristocrat, Russian emigre writer Ivan Bunin (1870-1953) was the moral and artistic spokesman for a generation of expatriates who awaited bolshevism's collapse so they could return home. He arrived destitute in Paris with his common-law wife, Vera Muromtseva, in 1920, and, as this volume closes in 1933, won the Nobel Prize. Bunin's dire prophecies of Soviet tyranny and mass murder were more than fulfilled. A sequel to Ivan Bunin: Russian Requiem, this collage of letters, diary and memoir excerpts and stories as well as commentary by Bunin's contemporaries provides tantalizing glimpses of Russian emigre circles in 1920s Paris that include Igor Stravinsky, Marc Chagall, Anna Pavlova and Evgeny Zamyatin. Marullo is an associate professor of Russian at the University of Notre Dame. Photos not seen by PW.

From Library Journal

This is the second volume of Thomas Marullo's compiled "biography" of Ivan Bunin (1870-1953), which began with Ivan Bunin: Russian Requiem 1885-1920; A Portrait from Letters, Diaries, and Fiction (LJ 6/1/93). In excerpts from Bunin's writings as well as those of his wife Vera Muromtseva-Bunina and others, a vivid picture of life in exile emerges. Bunin, loyal to his country's tsarist tradition, was devastated by his flight from Bolshevism in 1920. He continued to write, however, and became both a hero and a scourge to the emigre community in Paris. In 1933, the year this volume ends, Bunin became the first Russian to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. As in the first volume, Marullo's (Russian literature, Notre Dame) excellent introduction and commentary are necessary to fuse the many elements he has brought together into a coherent package. This portrait of a lonely exile, clinging to the dream of returning to his homeland, is an essential companion to Russian Requiem. Highly recommended for all Russian literature collections.?Diane Gardner Premo, SILS, Univ. of Buffalo, N.Y.
