New Russian Books, part 1

Modern Russian literature remains largely unknown in the UK. With few exceptions like Boris Akunin, British readers still read and discuss Russian masters and the Soviet era authors. Is there a next Tolstoy writing in the present day Russia? What is the new face of Russian literature? How Russian history, life and mentality are all portrayed in new Russian prose? Which authors are popular amongst readers and which are the critics’ favourite and why?

In his talk titled NEW RUSSIAN BOOKS, author and blogger Grigory Ryzhakov answers such questions and presents his new book, The Reader’s Mini-Guide to Modern Russian Literature.
