In addition to his numerous works in prose and poetry for both children and adults, Daniil Kharms (1905-1942), one of the founders of Russia's "lost literature of the absurd", wrote notebooks and a diary for most of his adult life. Published for the first time in recent years in Russian, these notebooks provide an intimate look at the daily life and struggles of one of the central figures of the literary avant-garde in Post-Revolutionary Leningrad.
