Summary A landmark in Russian literature hailed as "one of the four great masterpieces of twentieth-century prose" by Vladimir Nabokov, author of Lolita . In this incomparable novel of the seething revolutionary Russia of 1905, Andrei Biely plays ingeniously on the great themes of Russian history and literature as he tells the mesmerizing tale of Apollon Apollonovich Ableukhov, a high-ranking Tsarist official, and his dilettante son, Nikolai, an aspiring terrorist, whose first assignment is to assassinate his father. "There is nothing like a ticking time bomb to supply fictional suspense, and perhaps no other writer has ever used the device more successfully than Andrei Biely in St. Petersburg ... Biely is a crafty storyteller who can keep a reader flipping the pages while whipping up an intellectual storm." - Time.
