In September 2010 I featured
illustrator Joanna Neborsky's adaptation of Fénéon's Novels In Three Lines
. Joanna has since worked her magic for deadpan Russian absurdist Daniil Kharms:
"Daniil Kharms (1905–1942) wore a hat to protect his ideas from being seen. He smoked a pipe to appear English (he was Russian). He wrote twenty children's books. This is not one of them.
"This short story from 1936 is illustrated in twenty collaged pages. Available in English and Italian editions. English translation courtesy Matvei Yankelevich and The Overlook Press."
