Reviews

"When Serena Vitale traveled to Moscow, proposing to gather Viktor Shklovsky's thoughts and memories in a book-length interview, the writer was furious: 'How, ' he cried, 'can you write a book in ten days?'--This from the mercurial figure who had written articles, novels, essays, screenplays; everything, as he said, apart from poetry and denunciations . . . But the intelligent interviewer persevered, and won the day: the dialogue took place in Moscow at the end of December 1978, in exceptional weather, one of the coldest winters of the century . . . [and became] an opportunity [for Shklovsky] to revive, with his dazzling images, the vitality of movements past, to honor the passions of artists and poets."
