Description
25 of Russian literature’s greatest short stories in English translation. Includes 'The Blizzard' by Alexander Pushkin; 'The Overcoat' by Nikolai Gogol; 'The Snow Storm' by Leo Tolstoy; 'The Bishop' by Anton Chekhov; 'The Vane Sisters' by Vladimir Nabokov; an excerpt from 'Landscape of Loneliness' by Svetlana Alexievich; 'Sweet Shura' by Tatyana Tolstaya; and writing from 2015 Nobel Prize-winner Svetlana Alexievich. Dramatic tales from the imagination of great male and female literary giants of the last two hundred years.
