Editorial Reviews

Review

Valuable...This is not the typical diary of a famous writer, rather, a memoir of the revolution and civil war that captures the political uncertainty of the period. (Frederick H. White Slavic and East European Journal)

A harrowing description of the forerunners of the concentration camps and the Gulag. (Marc Raeff)

Highly readable. (The Washington Times)

An admirable job...this book deserves attention. (Atlantic Monthly)

Format: Hardcover
The previous customer review refers haughtily to the "hauteur" of Ivan Bunin, a "right-wing, upper class novelist." Say what? Bunin, a master of Russian prose, was understandably aghast as he watched the sudden, violent and senseless destruction of the glorious Russian culture. The reviewer sneers that "the folk, in Bunin's opinion, were ignorant, gullible, violent, dirty, and totally unfit to take a hand in government." Well, it sounds like Bunin got it just about right! Just look what the left-wing thugs ruling in the name of "the folk" did to Russia for the next 70 years.
Strangely, Soviet leaders decided that "Cursed Days" was unsuitable for consumption by "the folk." Hmmm... Talk about hauteur! Only in recent years was the publication of this amazing diary permitted in Bunin's homeland, and now - thanks to Thomas Gaiton Marullo's splendid translation - English-speaking readers can finally see that there were some people who weren't fooled in 1917. I just hope that modern readers will read Bunin's prophetic diary of those cursed days... and remember.
