Yama: The Pit
Yama: The Pit by Aleksandr Kuprin
Aleksandr Ivanovich Kuprin (7 September 1870 in the town of Narovchat in the Penza Oblast - August 25, 1938 in Leningrad) was a Russian writer, pilot, explorer and adventurer who is perhaps best known for his masterpiece The Duel (1905). Other well known works include Moloch (1896), Olesya (1898), Junior Captain Rybnikov (1906), Emerald (1907), and The Garnet Bracelet (1911) (which was made into a 1965 movie). Vladimir Nabokov styled him Russian Kipling for his stories about pathetic adventure-seekers, who are often "neurotic and vulnerable."
