Summary (From the publisher):

This collection of stories is composed of short miniatures, many of which the author called "incidents". By featuring so prominently in his writing sudden death, falling, accidents, chance violence, Kharms conveys more vividly than any other writer the precarious nature of life in Stalin's Russia. For this reason his works were banned until the 1980s.
