For some reason, my new blog Read Russian Books in English does not come up in web searches, so here's a quick update!
New fun and interesting Russian books added:
Beemby Gavriil Troepolsky, a short novel depicting tribulations of a lost dog looking for his master. If this story doesn't break your heart, nothing will :)
Crimson Sailsby Alexander Grin, a fantasy romance about Soll - a young girl destined to live out a prophecy made by a traveling storyteller. One of Russia's most treasured books ever.
The Amphibianby Alexander Belyaev, a leading Russian pre-war science fiction author. A short novel set in the 1920s Argentina tells the story of a mad scientist who subjects his adoptive son to a revolutionary experiment... then lives with its consequences. Made into a cult movie The Amphibian Manin 1962.
Enjoy! There're more books on Read Russian Books in English: not many as the blog is only three days old, but I intend to add hundreds more as soon as I can!
