Yuri Felsen

Yuri Felsen (né Nikolai Freudenstein, 1894–1943) was one of the most interesting and original writers of the post-Revolutionary Russian emigration. His stylistically rich, psychologically penetrating novels and stories earned him the moniker “the Russian Proust.” After his death in Auschwitz, he fell into obscurity, and his work is only now being translated into English.
