In February 1942, in a Leningrad blocked by the Nazi army, Mr Kharms starved in the psychiatric hospital where he had shut himself out of Stalinist power only thirty-seven years ago. He had solely published two poems, aside from the stories for children he had written to survive. Two days later, his wife and philosopher Iakov Druskin, his friend, retrieve the suitcase where Kharms had kept the manuscripts, which will be published forty years later. With this spectacle, the humor, the art and the irony of this author recover the violence of totalitarianism
