Wladimir  Kaminer - Tolstoy's Beard and Chekov's Shoes


"Wladimir Kaminer knows Russian literature like his backyard." Brigitte

There are few German writers around who know Russian literature as well as Wladimir Kaminer. He tells us in his inimically entertaining and humorous way of the lives and works of seven major authors in the country of his birth.

It is an invitation for us to go on a wonderful journey of discovery which will arouse our interest in and enthusiasm for the writers portrayed here: Fyodor Dostoevsky, Leo Tolstoy, Anton Chekov, Mikhail Bulgakov, Vladimir Mayakovsky, Vladimir Nabokov and Daniil Charms.

"Wladimir Kaminer knows how to convey facts about Russian literary history in a wonderfully entertaining manner - but also quite profoundly."
