“I Beg You to Hear Me!” celebrates the varied and colourful panorama of Russian literature of the 1920s and 1930s. Through ‘lyrical’ biographies and storyboards in the style of a graphic novel, the writers emerge as comic-strip heroes, living and creating during the turmoil of the early years of the Soviet Union.
This publication is the offspring of a multimedia exhibition held at dalla Rosa Gallery, London, in 2011.
