Used; Very Good "An early death prevented further development of Maksimov's talent ... it may well be that [he] is the only important prose writer produced by the Second Emigration, distinguished not so much by his subject-matter, but by the relaxed maturity of his style and insightful panoramic view of Soviet society" (Terras, 1985).
