Жизнь в Kнигах (Russian Literature)

I could cite the wild imaginings of Gogol, who can make the most unlikely event — a man wakes up to discover that his nose has gone missing — seem not only plausible but convincing; the mournful delicacy of Chekhov, his uncanny skill at revealing the deepest emotions of the men, women and children who populate his plays and short stories; the subtlety with which Turgenev portrays the natural landscape and his meticulously rendered but ultimately mysterious characters (Francine Prose in NY Times of Books).
