Publisher's Summary

Andrey Platonov (1899-1951) po pravu schitayetsya odnim iz luchshikh pisateley XX veka. Odnako priznaniye prishlo k nemu lish' posle smerti. Roman «Chevengur» byl napisan v 1926-1929 godakh, no pri zhizni avtora tak i ne uvidel svet. Eto ne prosto samyy bol'shoy po ob"yemu platonovskiy roman, no i svoyeobraznaya vekha v tvorchestve khudozhnika. V nem pisatel' podverg kriticheskomu peresmotru, «ul'trarevolyutsionnyye» idei, kotoryye nakhodili vyrazheniye v yego rannikh proizvedeniyakh.

Chevengur - tak nazyvayetsya gorod, gde gruppa kommunistov, voznamerivshis' sovershit' mgnovennyy «pryzhok» v kommunizm, organizuyet konets sveta - «vtoroye prishestviye» dlya mestnoy burzhuazii. V rezul'tate massovogo rasstrela ubity vse zhiteli goroda. S etogo momenta, po mneniyu kommunistov, nastayet «konets istorii» - prezhneye ostanovilos', i nastupilo blazhennoye bytiye v mire bez ekspluatatsii, v kotorom yedinstvennym rabotnikom yavlyayetsya solntse. Stremyas' naselit' gorod novymi lyud'mi, chevengurtsy sobirayut po stepi «proletariyev» - nishchikh strannikov. Odnako Chevengurskaya kommuna gibnet. Chelovecheskoye bytiye - v krovavom khaose revolyutsii i grazhdanskoy voyny... Sud'ba strany - v oskolke sud'by odnogo cheloveka... Krestnyy put' natsii kak zhiznennyy put' nevinnoy zhertvy «perelomnoy epokhi». «Chevengur» - strashnaya i prekrasnaya kniga!
