Publisher Description

Little-known literary works by Truman Capote, Vladimir Nabokov, and more: “[An] extraordinary collection of inexplicably forgotten treasures.” —New York magazine
Radical Shadows collects lost, forgotten, suppressed, rare, or unknown works by major literary writers from the late nineteenth century forward. From previously unpublished work by Djuna Barnes and Truman Capote (his earliest known story), to writing by Chekhov, Dostoevsky, Kawabata, Musil, and other world-class authors, the issue is a celebration both of the art of translation and of the breadth and depth of the many revelatory discoveries that can still be found in the historical literary archive.
