"For in Envy Olesha is himself...but himself in that shadowland of yearnings which was his special province. He was never at home, except in his 'shop of metaphors,' neither in remembrances, like Marcel Proust, nor, like Tolstoy, even in his doubts. Olesha's essence is homelessness and a longing for a home, which he finds only in craftsmanship, in precise, metaphoric statements of unresolved questions. Olesha is the craftsman of unrest, of a restrained anxiety that is never elevated to philosophic principles. He is not an ist of any kind."Olesha, Yuri is the author of 'Envy', published 2004 under ISBN 9781590170861 and ISBN 1590170865.
