Review:

"For lit nerds and loved ones who are notoriously hard to shop for, you can't go wrong with these festively bound classics. . . . Their size makes them perfectly stocking-stuffable." --"Entertainment Weekly, ""The Must List" "Leave it to the folks at Penguin--who gave us Gothed-out editions of horror classics for Halloween--to package these . . . slim Yuletide-themed volumes." --"Newsday, ""Best Books to Give as Holiday Gifts" "Remember how Christmas was celebrated before Black Friday with these 19th-century authors, in small uniform volumes wrapped in pretty jackets." --"USA Today, ""Holiday Gift Books So Pretty, No Need to Wrap" "Beautifully designed." --"The Washington Post"

From the Publisher:

Gogol's classic, uproarious folktale, presented in a beautiful hardcover edition perfect for giving as a gift.

Written in 1831, this dark tale relates the adventures of Vakula, the blacksmith, in his fight against the devil, who has stolen the moon above the village of Dikanka and is wreaking havoc on its inhabitants, all to win the love of the most beautiful girl in town. The basis for many film and opera adaptations, and still a story traditionally read aloud to children on Christmas Eve in Ukraine and Russia, The Night Before Christmas is the best holiday tale by the man whom Vladimir Nabokov called 'the greatest writer Russia has yet produced'.

Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852) was the son of a Ukrainian gentleman farmer. He attended a variety of boarding schools, where he proved an indifferent student but was admired for his theatrical abilities. In 1828 he moved to St. Petersburg and began to publish stories, and by the mid-1830s he had established himself in the literary world and been warmly praised by Pushkin. In 1836, his play The Inspector-General was attacked as immoral, and he left Russia, remaining abroad for most of the next dozen years. During that time he wrote two of his best-known stories, 'The Nose' and 'The Overcoat,' and in 1842 he published the first section of his masterpiece Dead Souls. Gogol became increasingly religious as the years passed, and in 1847 he became the disciple of an Orthodox priest who influenced him to burn the second part of Dead Souls and then abandon writing altogether. After undertaking an extreme fast, he died at the age of forty-two.
