Summary

Daniil Kharms (1905-1942) is one of Russia's great lost absurdists - a writer whose world still alarms, shocks and bewitches more than half a century after he died in prison during the siege of Leningrad. Comedian and Russophile Tim Key has been entranced by Kharms' beautiful, horrible, hilarious world for years. But is there more to Kharms than a series of curious happenings cooked up by an eccentric mind in a troublesome world? Key suspects there is and here he delves, along the way encountering Simon McBurney, Willem Dafoe, Alice Nakhimovsky, Matvei Yankelevich and fellow comic Noel Fielding, who he hopes to convert.
