The Inspector

By Nikolai Gogol Translated by Richard Nelson, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky

Paperback £15.99

A revelatory new translation of Gogol’s biting masterpiece by American playwright Richard Nelson, in collaboration with the foremost contemporary translators of classic Russian literature, Richard Pevear and Larissa Volokhonsky.

Called 'the greatest play written in Russian' by Vladimir Nabokov, Nikolai Gogol’s immortal comedy is a pitch-perfect satire of social corruption.

This edition also contains an introduction and textual notes by Richard Pevear.
