    Gogol

    I realize he isn't Russian, but he wrote in Russian so that's good enough for me. I cannot find Diary of a Madman at the library, does anyone happen to know if it's online somewhere? Preferably in English so I can finish it sometime before my 70th birthday.

    I am pretty sure he is Ukrainian. And I've already read Dead Souls, but thank you.

    I would really like Diary of A Madman. I guess I'll just read Revizor instead.

    Try this link:

    AFAIK Гоголь is normally considered russian writer, although of ukrainian origin.

    Here are some works by Gogol: http://www.lib.ru/GOGOL/

    I'm not sure if Diary of a Madman is there, tough.

    Already did. Their selection for him wasn't very wide, and Ibiblio's FTP seemed to be down at the time.

    I gave up and just got a book of collected essays and correspondence from Russian authors (which hadn't been checked out since 1952--that should give you an idea of how few books there are in there and how low demand is for them ) while killing some time in the library.

    To Kim, Scorpio and ekalin: Thanks.
    To z80: Get back in your cage!
