Fertility and other stories Fertility and other stories A first English-language collection of the short fiction of a vigorous Russian writer, once a Soviet favorite son (for his \"correct\" Red Army tale \"Armored Train 14-69\") and later denied Party approval - a fluctuation that left its mark on Ivanov's inconsistent candor and realism. If stories like \"The Child\" casually assume the politicization of illiterate peasants, their author's obviously mixed loyalties show to better literary advantage in such troubling pieces as \"Fertility\" (in which a nearly mystical closeness to nature both empowers and destroys a simple villager's life) and \"The Mansion,\" an ironical study of an egotist whose \"loyalties\" shift with the passing winds. Ivanov, who was a friend and protege of Maxim Gorky's, exhibits at his best some of that mentor's proletarian energy, Isaac Babel's wry political subtlety, and even Gogol's bizarre inventive power. He's a neglected writer very much worth rediscovering. (Kirkus Reviews) Northwestern University Press 978-0-8101-1547-7
