This almanack published officially undesirable writers such as Anna Akhmotova, Izaak Babel, Joseph Brodskey, Mikhail Kuzman, Osip Mandelshtam, Vladimir Nabokov, Boris Pasternak and Mariya Tsvetaeva. The first volume was dedicated to Pasternak, who had recently died following his denunciation after the publication of Doctor Zhivago in the West in 1958. He was forced to refuse the Nobel Prize for Literature. The title of this almanack refers to Pasternak's 1925 collection of short stories.
