Editorial Reviews

"...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
