BORN in St. Petersburg only thirty-three years ago. Mr. Gerhardi literally leapt into fame with his first book. ' Futility,' a novel on Russian themes. In this, with a knowledge of Russia drawn from his experience in his own youth, and later as Military Attache at Petrograd during the Revolution and in Siberia from 1918 to 1920, he wonderfully portrayed the strange enigma of the Russian mind. His work since then has aroused much difference of opinion amongst the critics, but his brilliance is undisputed, and his latest novel, Jazz and Jasper,' shows that he has lost none of it so far. The story that he will read tonight is a keenly-drawn little study of the reactions of a girl in love with the man who plays the big drum.
