Andrei Platonov (1899–1951)

You can read my review of David Bellos’s Romain Gary: A Tall Story (Harvill Secker) in the Times Literary Supplement this week, where you can also read the first English translation of Andrei Platonov’s ‘On the First Socialist Tragedy’, described as ‘one of the earliest and greatest of classic ecological texts’.


‘The relationship between technology and nature is tragic’
Platonov
