"Amazingly modern, as easy to devour as a box of chocolates" Observer

"Teffi’s brilliance at capturing the dark comedy of her milieu should no longer prevent her from being recognised as an important European writer" TLS

Teffi’s literary genius made her a star in pre-revolutionary Russia, beloved by Tsar Nicholas II and Vladimir Lenin alike. An extremely funny writer with a scathing critical eye, she was also capable of Chekhovian subtlety and depth of character.

Ranging from humorous sketches of a vanished Russia to ironic, melancholy evocations of post-revolutionary exile, And Time Was No More showcases the full range of Teffi’s gifts. A new selection by the celebrated Robert Chandler, it includes previously untranslated stories alongside more famous work, demonstrating the enduring freshness of one of the great wits of Russian literature.

Selected and translated by Robert Chandler.
