In this second volume of his major work on Bunin, Marullo recreates his life in exile, chiefly in Paris, after escaping from his newly bolshevized country in 1920. A vivid picture of a man without a country, and a window on the lively but despairing and often fractious community of Russian emigres in Paris in the twenties. An important event that will change the perception of Russian cultural life this century. -Times Literary Supplement.
Thomas G. Marullo is professor of Russian literature at the University of Notre Dame, author of If You See Buddha, and editor of Ivan Bunin: The Twilight of Emigre Russia, Ivan Bunin: Russian Requiem, and Bunin's diary Cursed Days. He lives in South Bend, Indiana.
