An NYRB Classics Original br br Few writers had to confront as many of the last century s mass tragedies as Vasily Grossman who wrote with terrifying clarity about the Shoah the Battle of Stalingrad and the Terror Famine in the Ukraine i An Armenian Sketchbook i however shows us a very different Grossman notable for his tenderness warmth and sense of fun br br After the Soviet government confiscated or as Grossman always put it arrested i Life and Fate i he took on the task of revising a literal Russian translation of a long Armenian novel The novel was of little interest to him but he needed money and was evidently glad of an excuse to travel to Armenia i An Armenian Sketchbook i is his account of the two months he spent there br br This is by far the most personal and intimate of Grossman s works endowed with an air of absolute spontaneity as though he is simply chatting to the reader about his impressions of Armenia its mountains its ancient churches its people while also examining his own thoughts and moods A wonderfully human account of travel to a faraway place i An Armenian Sketchbook i also has the vivid appeal of a self portrait, I tre racconti qui radunati appartengono a momenti diversi della produzione di Grossman alla fine degli anni Trenta La giovane e la vecchia e L alce al biennio La cagnetta Eppure si possono ascrivere tutti e tre ai vertici della sua prosa sia che rifletta sulla mutevolezza beffarda dei destini umani sia che sottolinei in modo quasi paradossale la superiorit etica dell animale l eterna vittima sull uomo l eterno carnefice Grossman fa vibrare in ogni pagina la corda sottile del bene illogico e la sua ricerca illumina un mondo opaco e inerte dove solo pochi sanno vivere secondo coscienza, Vasili Grossman fue corresponsal de guerra en el frente de Stalingrado cuando la perla del Volga padeci la feroz ofensiva de los ej rcitos alemanes Nadie como el autor de la memorable Vida y destino supo plasmar el impresionante fresco de una batalla que marc el curso de la Segunda Guerra Mundial br br El ritmo trepidante de su pulso narrativo transporta al lector a los combates calle por calle casa por casa puerta por puerta bajo las bombas y un incesante fuego de artiller a A os de guerra re ne novelas y relatos como El pueblo es inmortal o El viejo profesor as como las cr nicas de Grossman sobre sus vivencias en el frente de Stalingrado o sobre el avance inexorable de las tropas sovi ticas hasta las puertas de Berl n am n del impresionante El infierno de Treblinka el primer testimonio de los horrores del Holocausto que fue utilizado en el Tribunal de Nuremberg br br Publicados ntegramente por vez primera en Espa a estos textos conforman un todo de una magnitud pica sobre uno de los episodios que cambi el rumbo de la historia y constituyen una nueva muestra del talento narrativo de Vasili Grossman, The novel tells the story of Ivan Grigoryevich who has returned to Russia after thirty years in the Gulag After short and unsatisfying visits to familiar places and persons in Moscow and Leningrad the hero settles in a southern provincial town where he briefly establishes a new life with a war widow Ivan Grigoryevich eventually returns to his boyhood home on the Black Sea where he is finally able to come to terms with the inhumanity of the new Russian regime
