Tietoja tekijästä

Vladimir Nikolayevich Voinovich was born in Stalinabad, Soviet Union on September 26, 1932. He worked as a herdsman and trained as a locksmith before serving in the Soviet Army from 1951 to 1955. He began writing poetry while in the army and in the mid-1950s started publishing stories in the näytä lisää magazine Novy Mir. One story, I'd Be Honest if They'd Let Me, about a construction supervisor whose conscience is bothered by the shoddy structures he is ordered to build, was singled out as being dangerous. His novel, The Life and Extraordinary Adventures of Private Ivan Chonkin, did not clear the Soviet censorship bar in 1969 but circulated underground and was published in Europe four years later. He was questioned repeatedly by the K.G.B. He left the country in 1980 and joined faculty of the Institute of Fine Arts in Munich. His Soviet citizenship was revoked in 1970 and he was unable to return for a decade. His other novels included Moscow 2042, The Fur Hat, Monumental Propaganda, and The Crimson Pelican. He died of a heart attack on July 27, 2018 at the age of 85. (Bowker Author Biography) näytä vähemmän

My oh my. I suspect that Mr. Voinovich was not popular with the authorities. A funny, funny book about a writer whose only goal is to get a better hat. The Writer’s Union is having hats made for its members and of course the more distinguished the writer, the more distinguished the fur to be used. Suffice to say, our hero finds that he is in line for a hat made of “fluffy tomcat.” The more he discovers what others are getting, the more incensed he becomes and the book is the story of his crusade to get something better. To say more would be telling. If you need a good laugh, read this.… (lisätietoja)

En vísperas del estallido de la segunda guerra mundial, un avión del Ejército Rojo realiza un aterrizaje forzoso en una remota aldea rusa. El soldado Iván Chonkin, un campesino desmañado e ingenuo pero dotado de un peculiar sentido común, es considerado el miembro más prescindible de su regimiento y es enviado allí con órdenes de custodiar el aparato. Olvidado rápidamente por sus superiores, Chonkin se integra en la peculiar vida del pueblo, donde protagoniza un sinfín de escenas hilarantes en compañía de sus estrafalarios vecinos. Pero ante la psicosis provocada por la invasión alemana, la policía política se entera de su existencia y envía un destacamento para arrestarlo por deserción.… (lisätietoja)

This is the tale of a Soviet citizen named Kartsev, who immigrates to West Germany in 1982, and is given the opportunity to visit Moscow in 2042 by way of a space/time ship. By this time Kartsev figures the Communist system will surely be perfected. You probably have to have read or at least know something about the style of Soviet protest literature to enjoy this story. Almost all the characters are allegories of or metaphors for what life is like, or what it should be like.
