    Produktinfo

    Vladimir Sorokin is the most controversial contemporary Russian writer. He became famous when the Putin youth organization burned his books and he picked up neo-imperialist discourses in his dystopian novels, making him one of the fiercest critics of Russia’s “new middle ages,” while remaining steadfast in his dismantling of foreign discourses.

    Rezensionen

    "Even the strictest selection of late and post-Soviet Russian literary classics will include the name of Vladimir Sorokin, who managed to build a bridge from the Russian literary canon of the 19th and 20th centuries into the 21st century. Without his name, the history of new Russian literature is simply unimaginable. This well thought-through and lucidly written book in a concise and accessible form introduces the reader to the works of one of the most imaginative and complex writers of modern Russia and will help both fans of Sorokin and his new readers to better understand the work of this always unpredictable and mercurial author."—Evgeny Dobrenko, Professor of Russian Studies, University of Sheffield
