Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0375701087, Paperback)The winner of the 1993 Russian Booker Prize for Baize-Covered Table with Decanter, Vladimir Makanin is nonetheless not well known in the West. The release of Escape Hatch & The Long Road Ahead should change that. This pair of novellas, both published in Russian in 1991, show Makanin to be a skillful and creative post-modernist whose work is rooted in both the tradition of the great masters of 19th-century Russian literature and the unique brand of Surrealism that grew out of the absurdities of life in the Soviet Union. While playing with the conventions of narrative and storytelling--as any good post-modernist must--Makanin grapples with moral choices and ethical dilemmas, as did all the great Russian writers who came before him.
