Selected Stories

A.F. Veltman

A.F. Veltman (1800-1870), a prolific but largely forgotten nineteenth-century Russian writer, played a significant role in the development of Russian literature. Once of the most popular prose writers in Russia in the 1830s and 1840s, his work influenced Pushkin, Gogol, Dostoevsky, and many others. The five stories in this collection will give the non-Russian reader a brief but representative sampling of Veltman's considerable literary output.

Reviews
"Very interesting stuff, that leaves us eager for further translations of Veltman's once-famous oeuvre." --Kirkus Reviews
