So after perusing my bookshelves (now that they are all nicely organized–every once in a while I stop and stare at them in happy wonder) I’ve started compiling a list of Russian authors. If you’re interested in checking it out, there’s a link to the page under the header of the blog.
In other Russian author news, James Meek, the author of The People’s Act of Love (2005) has an interesting article about Mikhail Bulgakov’s novel, A Dog’s Heart here (it’s an excerpt of the introduction to the new Penguin edition due out next month–in the UK at least). I loved The Master and Margarita, and I’ve had Bulgakov’s Black Snow and The White Guard on my shelves for a while–perhaps this is a sign that I should read more of his prose. So many books! And why do they all have to make an appearance in my life just as a new semester (and a rather intimidating reading schedule) begins?
EDITED TO ADD: I’ve added some authors to the Russian authors page and while doing so, I discovered the European Classics Series, which contains quite a few Russian works. I recommend checking it out if you are interested in Russian literature (or increasingly obsessed, as I seem to be).
