Nikolai Erdman is one of the giants of Russian literature. He is best-known for his play, 'The Suicide'. Stalin had this play banned and suppressed for over 50 years. With 'Glasnost' the reputation and interest in the life and work of Erdman has been rekindled in the USSR and in the West. This book is a 'first' in many ways. It is the only full-length study of Erdman's life, his work and his times. It contains many hitherto unknown details about his life, all based upon original and exhaustive research from original documents. It also has a full bibliography and index. This is the seminal work of Erdman and the literary and artistic period of his times.
