(From the publisher):
Lyrical, strange, yet sharply concrete, Platonov's fiction is that of a wanderer in an all-too-real Utopia, a devastated world that is both terrifying and sublime.
This collection of Platonov's short fiction brings together seven works drawn from the whole of his career. It includes the harrowing, and long-unavailable, novella Dzahn, in which a young man returns to his Asian birthplace to find his people deprived not only of food and dwelling, but of memory and speech, and "The Potudan River," Platonov's most celebrated story.
