Folio order now complete

I received this week the last book of my 2008 order from the Folio Society : Nikolas Gogol : The Collected Stories. It has an introduction by Philip Hensher, it is translated by Constance Garnett and finely illustrated by Peter Suart. It contains stories like The Nose, the Madman, the overcoat and some other important "must-reads" of Russian literature.

Another package arrived at the same time : Proust biography by Painter. Can't wait to start that reading.
Both books are listed in the Bibliotheque Ideale.
