Synopsis: This is the only book, Russian or Western, that provides a comprehensive survey of developments in Russian literature over the last fifteen years of the Soviet regime.
"This is a model of encyclopedic coverage and concise description." George Gibian, Cornell University
"Concise, gracefully written, and thoroughly researched, this book is indispensable for anybody at all interested in modern Russian writing, or, for that matter, the recent history of Russia." Maurice Friedberg, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
"This survey leaves no doubt that Russian literature is producing writers of interest and stature as never before." Victor Terras, Brown University
"Brown's new book is a significant contribution to the study of contemporary Russian literature in the West. It provides an objective assessment of the curent situation in Russian literature. His evaluation of artistic talent is fair, and his critical observations are succinct, sensitive and subtle." N.N. Shneidmen, The Russian Review
"Deming Brown's 1978 Soviet Russian Literature Since Stalin stands as one of the most useful and well written surveys of literature and literary politics n the post-stalinist period...his new book...is full of well-informed observations on dozens of contemporary Russian authors...The Last Years of Soviet Russian Literature is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the final stage of Soviet literature and the beginning of the still amorphous post-Soviet era. It is the latest in a long and impressive list of contributions that Deming Brown has made to the study of Soviet Russian literature." Kathleen Parthé
"...an invaluable sequel to his standard Soviet Russian Literature Since Stalin....Essential for academic libraries." Choice
"Brown's skill at providing a vivid and comprehensive picture of a writer in a few paragraphs is commendable." Patricia Pollock Brodsky, World Literature Today
"...the most current book-length survey of recent Soviet Russian prose available in English....Brown's book contains a great deal of information, and its author deserves a sincere round of applause for having made his way through the increasingly chaotic landscape of recent Russian fiction to construct a useful roadmap for the rest of us to follow....anyone with an interest in current developments in Russian prose should have a look at it...." Catherine Theimer Nepomnyashchy, Slavic and East European Journal
