A noir mystery by the acclaimed modernist master Gaito Gazdanov, set in the Paris underworld

'I was continuously conscious of an unescapable, many-dimensional, extraordinary unreality of my life'

A Russian émigré studying in Paris during the interwar years suffers from curious fits, during which he experiences daydreams as if they were reality - including visions of his own death. He one day encounters Sherbakov, a wealthy man whom he had briefly met two years earlier, when Sherbakov was a homeless destitute. In the intervening years, through a twist of fate, Sherbakov has become a wealthy man, and the two soon become friends. However, one day the student is arrested, and charged with his friend's vicious murder and the theft of a precious golden Buddha...

By turns Kafkaesque, lyrical, metaphysical, and poignant, The Return of the Buddha marks the maturation of Gazdanov's philosophical investigation into the possibility of life lived freely and is every bit as thrilling and hypnotic as Gazdanov's famous earlier novel, The Spectre of Alexander Wolf.
