First Edition, Jonathan Cape, 1970, Hardback with removable protective plastic wrap – Stories – 283 pp.
A miscellany of stories and articles otherwise uncollected, along with an interview with Babel and some remembrances of him by colleagues who survived the Stalin purges.
You Must Know Everything is one of Babel’s earliest stories and even here you can see his masterful talent at storytelling, guiding the reader through what on the surface seems mundane but giving it the edge of reality and the unexpected that come with it.
