In the Petersburg Tales, Gogol depicts a 19th-century Russian capital that’s surreal but recognizable, ridiculous and grotesque. Whether it’s beauty, wealth, or social position you’re after, you can find it in Petersburg—but you can lose it, too. This original, highly physical piece distills some of Gogol’s best loved stories about a city where a nose can go missing, a clerk can turn king, and a man can find true love in a piece of outerwear.
