Publishers Description: TRANSLATED AND WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ROBERT CHANDLER Moscow in the 1930s is a symbol of Soviet paradise; a fairy-tale capital where, in Stalins words, life has become better, life has become merrier". Beautiful, passionate, Moscow Chestnova bears her captials name, and seeks the happiness it promises. She flits from man to man, fascinated by the brave new world supposedly taking shape around her, on a quest for the better life. This anarchic satire is accompanied by related works - short stories, an essay and a screenplay - and through Robert Chandlers acclaimed new translations Platonovs extraordinary prose and original vision can at last be experienced in full.
