Book Review: The Englishman from Lebedian'

The Englishman from Lebedian': A Life of Evgeny Zamiatin by J.A.E. Curtis was reviewed in the Modern Language Review, Volume 109, Part 4, October 2014. Reviewer Roger Cockrell (University of Exeter) writes:

“[T]hroughout this compelling new biography we are struck above all by Zamiatin’s multifaceted personality and extraordinary vitality. . . . The sheer amount of detail could have become overwhelming, but Curtis never allows it to stifle a narrative that brilliantly illuminates the life of one of the most talented figures in twentieth-century Russian life and letters."
