Roman tragi-comique d'un émigré russe et juif, à New York, dans les années 1970-1980. Par un écrivain russe à la prose "discrètement moqueuse", émigré aux Etats-Unis en 1978, qui refuse la tradition tragique de la littérature de son pays natal et qu'un critique américain a appelé le "Kerouac soviétique". L'intrigue s'articule autour d'une belle Russe et de son amoureux fou, un fougueux Portoricain. [SDM]
The zone : a prison camp guard's story by Sergeĭ Dovlatov( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in Sergei Dovlatov's unique voice and unmatched style, The Zone is a satirical novelization of Dovlatov's time as a prison guard for the Soviet Army in the early 1960s. Snapshots of the prison are juxtaposed with the narrator's letters to Igor Markovich of Hermitage Press in which he urges Igor to publish the very book we're reading. As Igor receives portions of the prison camp manuscript, so too does the reader. Arguably Dovlatov's most significant work, The Zone illuminates the twisted absurdity of the life of a prison guard: "Almost any prisoner would have been suited to the role of a guard. Almost any guard deserved a prison term." Full of Dovlatov's trademark dark humor and dry wit, The Zone's narrator is an extension of his author, and the book fittingly begins with the following disclaimer: "The names, events, and dates given here are all real. I invented only those details that were not essential. Therefore, any resemblance between the characters in this book and living people is intentional and malicious. And all fictionalizing was unexpected and accidental." What follows is a complex novel that captures two sides of Dovlatov: the writer and the man"--
Pushkin hills by Sergeĭ Dovlatov( Book )

16 editions published between 2012 and 2018 in English and held by 488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An unsuccessful writer and an inveterate alcoholic, Boris Alikhanov has recently divorced his wife Tatyana, and he is running out of money. The prospect of a summer job as a tour guide at the Pushkin Hills Preserve offers him hope of regaining some balance in life as his wife makes plans to emigrate to the West with their daughter Masha, but during Alikhanov's stay in the rural estate of Mikhaylovskoye, his life continues to unravel. Populated with unforgettable characters-including Alikhanov's fellow guides Mitrofanov and Pototsky, and the KGB officer Belyaev-Pushkin Hills ranks among Dovlatov's renowned works The Suitcase and The Zone as his most personal and poignant portrayal of the Russian attitude towards life and art."--
Chemodan by Sergeĭ Dovlatov( Book )

24 editions published between 1986 and 2021 in Russian and held by 306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sergei Dovlatov's subtle, dark-edged humor and wry observations are in full force in The Suitcase, as he examines eight objects -- (the Finnish crepe socks, the Nomenklatura half boots, a decent double-breasted suit, an officer's belt, Fernand Léger's jacket, a poplin shirt, the winter hat, and the driving gloves) -- items he brought with him in his luggage upon his emigration from the USSR
