Happy Moscow by Andreĭ Platonovich Platonov( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moscow Chestnova is a bold and glamorous girl, a beautiful parachuist who grew up with the Revolution. As a orphan, she knew tough times--but things are changing now. Comrade Stalin has proclaimed that "Life has become better! Life has become merrier!" and Moscow herself is poised to join the Soviet elite. But her ambitions are thwarted when a freak accident propels her flaming from the sky. A new, stranger life begins. Moscow drifts from man to man, through dance balls, all-night diners, and laboratories in which the secret of immortality is actively being investigated, exploring the endless avenues and vacant spaces of the great city whose name she bears, looking for happiness, somewhere, still. Unpublishable during Platonov's lifetime, Happy Moscow first appeared in Russian only in 1991. This new edition contains not only a revised translation of Happy Moscow but several related works: a screenplay, a prescient essay about ecological catastrophe, and two short stories in which same characters reappear and the reader sees the mind of an extraordinary writer at work."--Back cover
Soul by Andreĭ Platonovich Platonov( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Central Asia, Chagataev, the hero of Soul, goes on to be educated in Moscow. As an adult, he is sent back to his birthplace as a kind of missionary; believing his people are lost in the desert, he goes to rescue them and lead them towards Communism. His mission becomes a search for happiness, but his success goes only so far. The people prove that they have their own ideas about where and how they wish to be led. Andrey Platonov's style is that of myth and fable. Chagataev is an epic hero, a twentieth-century Moses leading his people to freedom and battling against the powers of darkness. At the same time, he is himself lost, vulnerable and ill at ease with the burden of responsibility which he tries to shoulder. There is a paradox in that by trying to release the people from one ruling power, he himself fills the role of another one. In this story about being in possession of your own life, Platonov weaves together Zoroastrian myth, Sufism, Communism and Freud, creating a work of psychological and philosophical nuance."--BOOK JACKET

Fourteen little red huts and other plays by Andreĭ Platonovich Platonov( Book )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this essential collection of Andrei Platonov's plays, the noted Platonov translator Robert Chandler edits and introduces The Hurdy-Gurdy (translated by Susan Larsen), Fourteen Little Red Huts (translated by Chandler), and Grandmother's Little Hut (translated by Jesse Irwin). Written in 1930 and 1933, respectively, The Hurdy-Gurdy and Fourteen Little Red Huts constitute an impassioned and penetrating response to Stalin's assault on the Soviet peasantry. They reflect the political urgency of Bertolt Brecht and anticipate the tragic farce of Samuel Beckett but play out through dialogue and characterization that is unmistakably Russian. This volume also includes Grandmother's Little Hut, an unfinished play that represents Platonov's later, gentler work."--
