    The Suitcase is an intensely human, delightfully ironic novel from "the finest Soviet satirist to appear in English since Vladimir Voinovich." Sergei Dovlatov's subtle, dark-edged humor and wry observations are in full force in "The Suitcase" as he examines eight objects - the items he brought with him in his luggage upon his emigration from the U.S.S.R.

    "The Zone" is a satirical novelization of Dovlatov's time as a prison guard for the Soviet Army in the early 1960s. Impressions of the prison are juxtaposed with the narrator's letters to Igor Markovich of Hermitage Press in which he urges Igor to publish the very book we're listening to. As Igor receives portions of the prison camp manuscript, so too does the listener. Arguably Dovlatov's most significant work, "The Zone" illuminates the twisted absurdity of the life of a prison guard.
