This collection of two classics by the great Russian writer Nikolay Gogol (1809-1852) includes two listener favorites. The first is his farcical story "Diary of a Madman", one of the master's most anthologized works. The second is his "The Portrait" which whimsically interweaves fiction with reality.

Would you try another book written by Nikolai Gogol or narrated by Piotr Korshunkov?

Not if it is narrated in Russian.

Would you be willing to try another one of Piotr Korshunkov’s performances?

No

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Bemusement. I do not speak Russian and that fact is not clear in the promotional materials.

Any additional comments?

What more is there to say?
