Leonid Tsypkin

20th Century Russian writer

A hundred years later, in his solitary underground in Brezhnev’s Moscow, Dostoevsky’s devoted reader, the good doctor Tsypkin, crafted his own small literary oeuvre of astonishing originality.

—Rachel Polonsky, The New York Review of Books

Masterful novellas … great tragic and artistic force.

Literlab

Extraordinary…Tsypkin turns out to have been a magnificent writer.

—Jonathan Rosen, The New York Times

Winding, twisting, poetic sentences of almost unsurpassable beauty…wove out of often far from beautiful material. They compose a small body of work that stands with the very best of world literature.

Asymptote

There is no prose quite like Tsypkin’s. Inside his dependent clauses, nested in his parentheses, the past is preserved, intact, contemporary with the present. The effect is vertiginous and profoundly moving.
