Translated by Constance Garnett (1861–1946)

Introduction by John Reed (1887–1920)
This novel is set in 1862 among a colony of Russians in the German resort town of Baden-Baden.
Grigory Litvinov gradually comes to realise that much of the activity of his fellow Russians is actually futile “smoke.” But can he do any better himself? When his former fiancée turns up and attempts to disrupt his life, he is presented with some difficult choices.
Of making many books there is no end [Ecclesiastes, 12.12]
