review Рассказ о семи повешенных 103 'It was like walking along the knife edge of the highest possible mountain range seeing life on one side and death on the other in the form of two deep gorgeous and gleaming seascapes' This astonishing novella from 1908 newly translated for Little Black Classics by War and Peace translator Anthony Briggs probes the emotion.
