Read full description of the books:
Van de drie vertalingen die er binnen een jaar van Het gouden kalf (1931) eind 1994, begin 1995 in ons land zijn verschenen, gooide de uitgave van uitgeverij M. Bondi, door de eigenzinnige, vrolijke vertaling van Frans Stapert, de hoogste ogen; dit is een andere vertaling.
In de roman van het bekende schrijversduo uit Odessa, Ilja Ilf en Jevgeni Petrov, worden nieuwe belevenissen verteld van de aartsoplichter Ostap Bender, met wie de lezer reeds in de eerder verschenen roman De twaalf stoelen (1928) kennis heeft kunnen maken. In Het gouden kalf weet Bender, dank zij veel vernuft en doorzettingsvermogen, een Sovjetmiljonair zijn geld afhandig te maken. Hij slaagt echter niet in zijn poging zijn nieuw verworven rijkdom de grens over te brengen. Een schitterende, humoristische avonturenroman, geschreven in een tijd die in veel opzichten doet denken aan de periode van economische verwarring waarin Rusland op dit moment verkeert.

Read information about the authorIlya Ilf, pseudonym of Iehiel-Leyb (Ilya) Arnoldovich Faynzilberg was a popular Soviet journalist and writer of Jewish origin who usually worked in collaboration with Yevgeni Petrov during the 1920s and 1930s. Their duo was known simply as Ilf and Petrov. Together they published two popular comedy novels The Twelve Chairs (1928) and The Little Golden Calf (1931), as well as a satirical book One-storied America (often translated as Little Golden America) that documented their journey through the United States between 1935 and 1936.
lf and Petrov became extremely popular for their two satirical novels: The Twelve Chairs and its sequel, The Little Golden Calf. The two texts are connected by their main character, Ostap Bender, a con man in pursuit of elusive riches. Both books follow exploits of Bender and his associates looking for treasure amidst the contemporary Soviet reality. They were written and are set in the relatively liberal era in Soviet history, the New Economic Policy of the 1920s. The main characters generally avoid contact with the apparently lax law enforcement. Their position outside the organized, goal-driven, productive Soviet society is emphasized. It also gives the authors a convenient platform from which to look at this society and to make fun of its less attractive and less Socialist aspects. These are among the most widely read and quoted books in Russian culture. The Twelve Chairs was adapted for ca. twenty movies, in the USSR (by Leonid Gaidai and by Mark Zakharov), in the US (in particular by Mel Brooks), and in other countries.
The two writers also traveled across the Great Depression-era United States. Ilf took many pictures throughout the journey, and the authors produced a photo essay entitled "American Photographs", published in Ogonyok magazine. Shortly after that they published the book Одноэтажная Америка (literally: "One-storied America"), translated as Little Golden America (an allusion to The Little Golden Calf). The first edition of the book did not include Ilf's photographs. Both the photo essay and the book document their adventures with their characteristic humor and playfulness. Notably, Ilf and Petrov were not afraid to praise many aspects of the American lifestyle in these works. The title comes from the following description.
America is primarily a one-and two-story country. The majority of the American population lives in small towns of three thousand, maybe five, nine, or fifteen thousand inhabitants.
