Praise for Novels, Tales, Journeys

A superb gathering of writings by the short-lived Alexander Pushkin ... Pevear and his longtime partner Volokhonsky render Pushkin's words in an easy, conversational tone that is very far from the fustiness of the Constance Garnett renderings of old ... A long overdue collection that speaks truly and well to Pushkin's brilliance as a prose stylist as well as observer of the world

Kirkus Reviews

Pushkin (1799-1837), arguably Russia's greatest poet, finds worthy translators in Pevear and Volokhonsky, who have compiled an indispensable edition of the master's complete prose. Pushkin's great ambition, keen curiosity, and comprehensive range are all in evidence here
