Rasskazy: New Fiction From a New Russia. Edited by Mikhail Iossel and Jeff Parker.

Published August 2009 by Tin House Books

ISBN: 978-0982053904

The Recommend:

Dark, rapturous, cynical – everything you love about Russian fiction, sprawled across twenty-two stories by authors born after the Iron Curtain came down.

Apply friction to fabric and the nubs will appear: these writers expose the smallest and most telling human errors, laying a feast for the more jaded reader.
