Summary (From the publisher):

Abram Tertz is the pseudonym of Andrei Sinyavsky, the exile Soviet dissident writer. The interrelated tales in his Fantastic Stories have been compared to fabulists like Kafka and Borges. One reads Tertz with a kind of vertigo, on guard against the nameless unexpected—the inexplicable and obscure changes in policy, the unfamiliar pre-dawn knock at the door. Tertz's settings are exotic but familiar and as compelling as those of lunatics and mystics.
