"This translation of Petersburg finally makes it possible to recognize Andrei Bely s great novel of 1913 as a crucial Russian instance of European modernist fiction." Inquiry

"All people who go in for the B s Beckett, Brecht, Bunuel better get hold of Bely. He came first, and he s still the best." Washington Post Book World

..". a jewel-cutter s showcase." Kirkus Reviews

..". the most important, most influential and most perfectly realized Russian novel written in the 20th century." Simon Karlinsky
