Russian Notebook

Original Title: Cuaderno ruso

Author: Alfonso Armada

My fascination for the Soviet Union was always more literary than political, more by the Russians than by the Soviets, and more in the wake of Chekhov, Dostoevsky, and later Bulgakov, Mandelstam (Osip and Nadezdha) and Brodsky than of the adalides of a Revolution that wanted to create a new man to blood and fire. This Russian Notebook (with Portuguese inlays) is an incursion into a remote past, a journey, a love story and its aftermath, which have not ceased to follow me with their aura of irony and frustration, words against fantasies.
