No Dust-jacket/ Near Fine     Light bumping to lower corners, otherwise near fine with a bright tight interior.
Translated from Russian by Margaret Wettlin. David Parkinson on 15th May 2012: Launching the trilogy that would be completed by My Apprenticeship and My Universities, Mark Donskois The Childhood of Maxim Gorky, adapted from the great Russian writers autobiography, is a masterpiece of latent Socialist Realism that owes as much to Hollywood mythologisers like John Ford and French humanists like Jean Renoir as Soviet apologists. Thus, this is an idealised reconstruction of the environment that shaped the authors personality and talent rather than a portrait of the young artist as a prototype Bolshevik.
