1923. Maxim Gorky, pseudonym of Alexei Maksimovich Peshkov, Soviet novelist, playwright and essayist, who was a founder of social realism. Although known principally as a writer, he was closely associated with the tumultuous revolutionary period of his own country. The book begins: And so I am going to Kazan; to study at the university; nothing less than that. It was the student Nikolai Yevreinov, a gentle handsome lad, with the caressing eyes of a woman, who inspired me with the idea of going to the university. He lived in the garret of the house where I roomed, and saw me frequently with a book under my arm, and this interested him. We became acquainted, and Yevreinov soon began to convince me that I possessed exceptional qualifications for science. See other titles by this author available from Kessinger Publishing.
