        There are certain books that are always on lists of “books you must read” and the like, and these books are generally two things: old and complex. After all, this week’s hot new bestseller is often an easy read for the simple reason that it’s part of the current zeitgeist — you don’t have to work very hard to get the references and understand the relationships more or less intuitively.   Fiction-writing in Russia has always been serious business. In a society without freedom, the great writers were the truth-tellers, the voice of the voiceless, and the conscience of a nation—“a second government,” as Alexander Solzhenitsyn once put it. Each of the ten works of fiction below is an acknowledged classic of Russian literature.

        The book is a part of my bigger project titled "Self and Other". It is not accidental that the attempt of my national self-identification is behind it. At some moment, having broken out through the “iron curtain” in the early s, traveling over the world, I felt myself to be a “man of the world”, without any ties to my national roots.
