Synopsis

Originally published in 1930, Gaito Gazdanov's An Evening with Claire is a masterpiece of Russian emigre literature. 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 that is both grand and introspective. Gazdanov's first 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. As Jodi Daynard writes in her tremendously informed introduction, An Evening with Claire 'presented pre-revolutionary Russia and the cataclysmic events which destroyed it in a manner both real and wistful, unregretful yet tender.'

Gaito Gazdanov was born in St. Petersburg in 1903. He joined the White army at age sixteen and was exiled in Paris, after passing through Constantinople. Before becoming a writer acclaimed by the Russian emigre community in Paris, he worked on barges, trains and in an automobile factory, and was sometimes homeless. A member of the French Resistance during World War II, Gazdanov died in Munich in 1971.
