Description: Holmgren and Goscilo provide a valuable backward glance and new point of reference for the recent revision of Russian literary history in the form of a serviceable translation of Verbitskaia's blockbuster novel of the early 1900s. Few prose works by women from this period have been translated, making this book a precious contribution. The act of translation provides a counterbalance to decisions made during the communist period, when bourgeois and decadent versions of art were exterminated and ordinary readers were deprived of any knowledge of many important steps in literary evolution. Furthermore, the prevailing, highly politicized opinion of Verbitskaia's prerevolutionary writing, focusing on the progress toward political correctness, has been recently redressed, yielding an important chance for revisiting her works. Like Laura Engelstein (who turns to the same title in The Keys to Happiness: Sex and the Search for Modernity in Fin--de--Siecle Russia, CH, May'93), Holmgren and Goscilo turned to Verbitskaia to explore the basis of commercial success in work by a woman writer, as well as to a tale (in Engelstein's words) celebrating the power of sexual desire, which the editors affirm in their introduction. This book will serve many audiences, from undergraduates and general readers through faculty.C. Tomei, Columbia University, Choice, February 2002
