This is the largest and most comprehensive anthology available in English of the new Soviet prose which has flourished in the time of glasnost. The works translated here were published in during the last three years of the Soviet Union, and demonstrate the remarkable diversity of style and subject matter which this period of freedom has encouraged.

The ten authors, all very well-known to Soviet readers, cover a wide range of subject matter, from provincial tragedy, to family drama treated with a startling frankness, to avant garde satire, to a new kind of historical saga.

Contents: Lyudmila Petrushevskaya, "Our Crowd"; Fazil Iskander, "Old Hasan's Pipe"; Mikhail Kuraev, "Captain Dikshtein"; Tatyana Tolstaya, "Night"; Vladimir Makanin, "Left Behind"; Nikolai Shmelyov, "The Visit"; Valery Popov, "Dreams from the Top Berth"; Anatoly Genatulin, "Rough Weather"; Viktor Erofeyev, "The Parakeet" and "Anna's Body"; Alexander Golovin, "Anna Petrovna."

From the Inside Flap:

This volume brings together the best writers (many of whom are making their debut in English) of the new Russian literary renaissance in the largest anthology available of works published during the last three years of the Soviet Union.

The ten writers included here are stars of the current literary scene and their works have evoked both praise and controversy, often provoking charges of excessive naturalism and pessimism. These stories illuminate new worlds for both the Russian and Western reader, as previously forbidden material is explored in works of real literary merit. Included are biographical sketches and an extensive introduction examining the new trends in Russian literature under Gorbachev.
