Originally published in 1930, Gaito Gazdanov's An Evening with Claire is a masterpiece of Russian emigre literature. Written when its author was just twenty-six - with the memories of his harsh years in the Russian civil war still hauntingly vivid in his mind - An Evening with Claire is a psychological novel that is both grand and introspective. Gazdanov's first novel is at once an intimate and sensual account of a young man's coming-of-age, and a tribute to the shattered dreams of the early twentieth century. As Jodi Daynard writes in her tremendously informed introduction, An Evening with Claire 'presented pre-revolutionary Russia and the cataclysmic events which destroyed it in a manner both real and wistful, unregretful yet tender.'
