The spectre of Alexander Wolf by Gaito Gazdanov( Book )

54 editions published between 1950 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a searing hot day in 1919, a young Russian soldier shoots another in self-defence. As the other man lies dying, the young soldier takes his horse and rides away. Years later, as a grown man in Paris whose life is still haunted by the murder he committed all that time ago, he comes across a story by a writer calling himself 'Alexander Wolf', which recounts in astonishing detail the events of that day in 1919 from the dying victim's point of view. As he attempts to find the elusive writer, the narrator becomes involved in a series of strange encounters that lead him to question life, death and his own identity
An evening with Claire by Gaito Gazdanov( Book )

Written when its author was just twenty-six, with the memories of his harsh years in the Russian civil war still hauntingly vivid in his mind, An Evening with Claire is a psychological novel is at once an intimate and sensual account of a young man's coming-of-age, and a tribute to the shattered dreams of the early twentieth century
Night roads : a novel by Gaito Gazdanov( Book )

24 editions published between 1925 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Drawing together episodes of rich atmosphere, this novel is as deep and brooding as the Paris nights that serve as its backdrop. Russian writer Gaito Gazdanov arrived in Paris, as so many did, between the wars and would go on, with this fourth novel, to give readers a crisp rendering of a living city changing beneath its people's feet." "Night Roads is loosely based on the author's experiences as a cab driver in those disorienting, often brutal years, and the narrator moves from episode to episode, holding court with many but sharing his mind with only a few. His companions are drawn straight out of the Parisian past: the legendary courtesan Jeanne Raldi, now in her later days, and an alcoholic philosopher who goes by the name of Plato. Along the way, the driver picks up other characters, such as the dull thinker who takes on the question of the meaning of life only to be driven insane. The dark humor of that young man's failure against the narrator's authentic, personal explorations of the same subject is captured in this first English translation."--Jacket

Die Geschichte einer grossen Liebe und eine unvergessliche Schilderung Russlands zu Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts: 1917 begegnet der verträumte Kolja im vorrevolutionären St. Petersburg der bezaubernden Claire und verliebt sich in sie. Aber das Phantasiebild dieser Frau ist für ihn so viel wirklicher als die Realität, dass er ihr nicht zu folgen wagt, als die verheiratete Claire ihn eines Abends zu sich lädt. Nach der langen, sinnlosen Grausamkeit des Bürgerkriegs will er nun, Jahre später, Claire im Pariser Exil wiederfinden. Mit den Mitteln des modernen Erzählens erweckt Gaito Gasdanow die vergangene Welt seiner Jugend wieder zum Leben. Ein Abgesang auf die romantische Liebe, der bis heute ergreift und berührt

The flight by Gaito Gazdanov( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 76 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While summering on the French Riviera, the young Seryozha secretly becomes the lover of the much older Liza - who is also his father's mistress. As autumn approaches, they reluctantly part: Liza to return to Paris, Seryozha to take up his studies at university in London. When he finds out about their affair, Seryozha's father attempts to convince Liza to leave his son, for the sake of the boy's own happiness. She finally gives in - but a sudden, fatal catastrophe changes everything... Gazdanov's second novel is proof of his wide-ranging talents: written before his celebrated noir experiments The Spectre of Alexander Wolf and The Buddha's Return, The Flight is a lyrical 'chamber play' in prose. Mixing psychological drama, illicit romance and moments of both comedy and pathos, it is a modernist take on the traditional Russian nineteenth-century realist novel epitomised by Tolstoy - with distinct echoes of Thornton Wilder's The Bridge of San Luis Rey.
