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 studentsat all levels the opportunity to enjoy a wide range of contemporary literaturewithout constantly having to refer to a dictionary.

The stories-many of which appear here in English for the first time-are bywell-established writers like Vladimir Sorokin, Ludmila Ulitskaya, Sergey Lukyanenko,andLudmilla Petrushevskaya as well as emerging voices like Alexander Ilichevsky,Evgeny Grishkovets,and Julia Kissina. Drawn from the last two decades of theSoviet Union and the two decades following its collapse, they chart a period ofdramatic social change, often using metaphors of the body, and represent a rangeof literary styles that highlight the dynamism of contemporary Russian fiction.

Complete with notes, the stories make excellent reading in either language.
