Summary
This collection of Platonov's short fiction brings together seven works drawn from the whole of his career. It includes the harrowing novella Dzahn (" Soul" ) , in which a young man returns to his Asian birthplace to find his people deprived not only of food and dwelling, but of memory and speech, and "The Potudan River," Platonov's most celebrated story.

In December 2007 The Fierce and Beautiful World will be superseded by Soul (978-159017-254-4) , a new translation of eight of Platonov's stories.
