In this powerful and brutal short story that forms the basis of the Shostakovich opera and found here in a new translation, Leskov demonstrates the enduring truth of the Shakespearean archetype joltingly displaced to the heartland of Russia.


Foreword by Gilbert Adair; Introduction; Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk; Notes; Biographical note


Journalist and prose writer Nikolai Leskov (1831-95), is remembered for his powerful characterisations and the quintessentially Russian atmosphere of his stories. Novelist, biographer, and critic Gilbert Adair is best known for his highly creative novels, including the 1997 Surfing The Zeitgeist, and his extensive writings on film.


"'Leskov's tales and sketches have a kind of unpredictable originality about them. He can deliberately mix fact and fiction, giving the reader no idea of what will happen next, and whether it is 'true' or not.' - The Spectator"
