Notes from underground : and the grand inquisitor by Fyodor Dostoyevsky( Book )
11 editions published between 1961 and 2004 in English and held by 784 libraries worldwide
The anonymous narrator of Notes from Underground is a bitter, misanthropic man living alone in St. Petersburg, Russia, in the 1860s. He is a veteran of the Russian civil service who has recently been able to retire because he has inherited some money. The novel consists of the "notes" that the man writes, a confused and often contradictory set of memoirs or confessions describing and explaining his alienation from modern society. Notes from Underground is divided into two sections. The first, "Underground," is shorter and set in the 1860s, when the Underground Man is forty years old. This section serves as an introduction to the character of the Underground Man, explaining his theories about his antagonistic position toward society. ... The second fragment of Notes from Underground, entitled "Apropos of the Wet Snow," describes specific events in the Underground Manʹs life in the 1840s, when he was twenty-four years old. In a sense, this section serves as a practical illustration of the more abstract ideas the Underground Man sets forth in the first section. This second section reveals the narratorʹs progression from his youthful perspective, influenced by Romanticism and ideals of "the beautiful and lofty," to his mature perspective in 1860, which is purely cynical about beauty, loftiness, and literariness in general. -- from http://www.sparknotes.com (Feb. 26, 2014)
Envy : and other works by I︠U︡riĭ Karlovich Olesha( Book )
2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 538 libraries worldwide
"Yuri Olesha's novella Envy brings together cutting social satire, slapstick humor, and a wild visionary streak. Andrei is a model Soviet citizen, a swaggeringly self-satisfied mogul of the food industry who intends to revolutionize modern life with mass-produced sausage. Nikolai takes what he can, but that doesn't mean he's grateful. Griping, sulking, grovellingly abject, he despises everything Andrei believes in, even if he envies him his every breath."

Dead souls by Nikolaĭ Vasilʹevich Gogolʹ( Book )
6 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
Dead souls describes the gambits of a quixotic opportunist in provincial Russia who sets out to buy deceased serfs at a low-cost from their owners. Chichikov requires evidence of "property," since he wishes to marry an heiress, and is able to amass the "souls" because their owners must pay taxes on them until they are officially declared dead in the rolls of the next census. An affable and personable business man, he is wined and dined in luxurious mansions and humble crofts, proclaimed a man of standing, and thought to be odd and delightful. Gogol's panorama of fraudulence is lasting allegory and aligns him with Swift, Voltaire, Balzac, and Dickens as one of the world's arch-satirists

Book Description: The Lonely Years, a collection of private correspondence, is essential to an understanding of Isaac Babel's life and works. Babel rose to fame in 1920s Russia for such books as Red Cavalry and Odessa Stories. But as Stalin's regime grew repressive, he found it increasingly difficult to write or publish. He was finally arrested in 1939, never to be heard from again. Alternately tender and biting, and accompanied by nine stories from the "lonely years," these letters show an individual laboring against all odds to remain true to his craft and ideals. This edition contains a new introduction, based on previously unreleased information from the KGB files
