Folks, I have a feeling that my plan to read the most important works of contemporary Russian literature will not come to fruition. I’m so enjoying the very first novel on my list that I will now end up reading everything the author has ever published.
On the one hand, it’s a great sign that the first novel I grabbed turned out great. But one the other, I’m now going to fall into one of my reading rabbit holes and not make any progress on the list.
I literally haven’t read any new prose in Russian that I enjoyed in 20 years. Or maybe it’s more like 25. I can’t explain how excited I am to see that there’s finally literature being written in Russian.
