Okay, I tried to like this classic Soviet Union tale. But, I wasn’t getting the jokes. It was basically about a gang of tricksters who try to pull the wool over everyone else’s eyes and rob people.
I just wasn’t following the humor. My friend from Russia told me that you just have to know the Soviet Union to appreciate the dry humor of this book.
She said that even her daughter who lived part of her life in America wouldn’t understand it at this point. I gave it a try, but I just couldn’t finish it.

Their duo was known simply as Ilf and Petrov. Together they published two popular comedy novels The Twelve Chairs and The Little Golden Calfas well as a satirical book One-st Ilya Ilf, pseudonym of Iehiel-Leyb Ilya Arnoldovich Faynzilberg was a popular Soviet journalist and writer of Jewish origin who usually worked in collaboration with Yevgeni Petrov during the s and s. Together they published two popular comedy novels The Twelve Chairs and The Little Golden Calfas well as a satirical book One-storied America often translated as Little Golden America that documented their journey through the United States between and The two texts are connected by their main character, Ostap Bender, a con man in pursuit of elusive riches.
Both books follow exploits of Bender and his associates looking for treasure amidst the contemporary Soviet reality. They were written and are set in the relatively liberal era in Soviet history, the New Economic Xukso of the s. The main characters generally avoid contact with the apparently lax law enforcement.
Their position outside the organized, goal-driven, productive Soviet society is emphasized. It also gives the authors a convenient platform from which to look at this society and to make fun of its less attractive and less Socialist aspects. These are among the most widely read and quoted books in Russian culture. The Twelve Chairs was adapted for ca. The two writers also traveled across the Great Depression-era United States.
Ilf took many pictures throughout the journey, and the authors produced a photo essay entitled “American Photographs”, published in Ogonyok magazine. The first edition of the book did not include Ilf’s photographs. Both the photo essay and the book document their adventures with their characteristic humor and playfulness.
Notably, Ilf and Petrov were not afraid to praise many aspects of the American lifestyle in these works. The title comes from the following description. America is primarily a one-and two-story country. The majority of the American population lives in small towns of three thousand, maybe five, vefsis, or fifteen thousand inhabitants.
