Most widely held works by Sigizmund Krzhizhanovskiĭ
Autobiography of a corpse by Sigizmund Krzhizhanovskiĭ( Book )
5 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 388 libraries worldwide
The stakes are wildly high in Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky's fantastic and blackly comic philosophical fables, which abound in nested narratives and wild paradoxes. This new collection of eleven mind-bending and spellbinding tales includes some of Krzhizhanovsky's most dazzling conceits: a provincial journalist who moves to Moscow finds his existence consumed by the autobiography of his room's previous occupant; the fingers of a celebrated pianist's right hand run away to spend a night alone on the city streets; a man's lifelong quest to bite his own elbow inspires both a hugely popular circus act and a new refutation of Kant. Ordinary reality cracks open before our eyes in the pages of Autobiography of a Corpse, and the extraordinary spills out
The return of Munchausen by Sigizmund Krzhizhanovskiĭ( Book )
9 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 263 libraries worldwide
First inspired in the eighteenth century by the tall tales of the real Baron Hieronymus von Münchausen, the legend of Baron Münchausen--as transmitted and transformed by Rudolf Erich Raspe and Gottfried August Bürger--soon eclipsed the fame of his living counterpart and has captivated the European imagination ever since

The letter killers club by Sigizmund Krzhizhanovskiĭ( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 38 libraries worldwide
Writers are professional killers of conceptions. The logic of the Letter Killers Club, a secret society of "conceivers" who commit nothing to paper on principle, is strict and uncompromising. Every Saturday they meet in a fire-lit room hung with blank black bookshelves to present their "pure and unsubstantiated" conceptions: a rehearsal of Hamlet hijacked by an actor who vanishes with the role; the double life of a medieval merry cleric derailed by a costume change; a machine-run world that imprisons men's minds while conscripting their bodies; a dead Roman scribe stranded this side of the River Acheron. The overarching scene of this short novel is set in Soviet Moscow, in the ominous 1920s. Known only by pseudonym, like Chesterton's anarchists in fin-de-sic̈le London, the Letter Killers are as mistrustful of one another as they are mesmerized by their despotic president. Sigizmund Krzhizhanovsky is at his philosophical and fantastical best in this extended meditation on madness and silence, the word and the soul unbound"
Le club des tueurs de lettres : roman by Sigizmund Krzhizhanovskiĭ( Book )
4 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in French and held by 35 libraries worldwide
La 4e de couv. Indique : Il est question ici du triangle qui unit celui qui écrit, celui qui lit et le troisième - qui aux deux autres donne existence -, le mot. Entre les trois coule l'encre, sang noir de l'écriture. Tout écrivain "professionnel" est un dresseur de mots. Les "tueurs de lettres ont été de ces dresseurs ; ils ont formé ce club, étrange petite société secrète, et chaque samedi, comme d'autres jouent aux cartes, fuyant un public de lecteurs de plus en plus décérébrés et voraces, ils se réunissent dans une chambre, bibliothèque ascétique, aux rayons vides. Chacun des tueurs de lettres va dérouler son récit dont aucune trace ne doit subsister... Et cependant un texte est là. Qui l'a écrit ? Pour témoigner de quoi ? Peut-on tuer les lettres sans effusion d'encre, sans qu'en épilogue le sang se mette à couler ?

Le retour de Münchhausen by Sigizmund Krzhizhanovskiĭ( Book )

Le baron de Münchhausen, c'est la fantaisie, la faconde, le mensonge de la fiction supplantant la vérité du réel.
