Product story

Rich in literary tradition, this book celebrates the work of the great Russia masters, such as Pushkin, Turgenev, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, and Solzhenitsyn, but also includes tales by long-suppressed figures such as the subversive Kryzhanowsky and the surrealist Shalamov.

This edition also includes an individual introduction for each author, notes and a chronology.
