The Enchanted Wanderer: and Other Stories

Length: 608 pages13 hours


Written over the course of Leskov’s career, each story in The Enchanted Wanderer elucidates the very essence of the human condition; themes of love, despair, loneliness, and revenge are explored against the backdrop of nineteenth-century working-class Russia. Leskov deftly layers social satire and subtle criticism atop myth and fable, resulting in a richly entertaining collection.

BONUS MATERIAL: This edition includes an excerpt from Jonathan Lethem's Dissident Gardens.
