Are there any people here who are interested in contemporary Russian literature? Specifically, twenty-first century stuff? I’ve decided to find out what’s been happening in the Russian literature in the past 20 years. In the 1980s and 1990s there was nothing. There were great entertainment genres but no serious literature. But who knows, maybe it all got better since? I read Russian with lightning speed. Something like 100 pages an hour. (In Spanish I do 40 and in English 60). I can plough through stuff fast.
If nobody is interested, I’m fine with not sharing my impressions. But if some people are, I’ll be glad to share. I’ll be doing fiction and nonfiction, novels, essays, and short stories.
I found this list but if anybody has a better one, please share. The creators of the list really love the words “conceptual literature,” and I’m a literary critic but I still have no idea what that is supposed to mean.
