Short Stories In Russian: New Penguin Parallel Text Paperback / softback

Edited by Brian James Baer


A dual-language edition of Russian stories--many appearing in English for the first time This new volume of ten short stories, with parallel translations, offers students at all levels the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary literature without constantly having to refer to a dictionary. The stories--many of which appear here in English for the first time--are by well-established writers like Vladimir Sorokin, Ludmila Ulitskaya, Sergey Lukyanenko, and Ludmilla Petrushevskaya as well as emerging voices like Alexander Ilichevsky, Evgeny Grishkovets, and Yulya Kisina.

Drawn from the last two decades of the Soviet Union and the two decades following its collapse, they chart a period of dramatic social change, often using metaphors of the body, and represent a range of literary styles that highlight the dynamism of contemporary Russian fiction. Complete with notes, the stories make excellent reading in either language.
