Mary : a novel by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )
23 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in English and held by 1,263 libraries worldwide
Mary is a gripping tale of youth, first love, and nostalgia--Nabokov's first novel. In a Berlin rooming house filled with an assortment of seriocomic Russian émigrés, Lev Ganin, a vigorous young officer poised between his past and his future, relives his first love affair. His memories of Mary are suffused with the freshness of youth and the idyllic ambience of pre-revolutionary Russia. In stark contrast is the decidedly unappealing boarder living in the room next to Ganin's, who, he discovers, is Mary's husband, temporarily separated from her by the Revolution but expecting her imminent arrival from Russia
The heart of a dog by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
12 editions published between 1968 and 2013 in English and held by 789 libraries worldwide
A rich, successful Moscow professor befriends a stray dog and attempts a scientific first by transplanting into it the testicles and pituitary gland of a recently deceased man. A distinctly worryingly human animal is now on the loose, and the professor's hitherto respectable life becomes a nightmare beyond endurance. An absurd and superbly comic story, this classic novel can also be read as a fierce parable of the Russian Revolution

The other Russia by Michael Glenny( Book )
18 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 594 libraries worldwide
The purpose of this book is to illustrate what life was like for Russian emigrants in different times and places, including, where possible, their memories of Russia before 1917 or in the Soviet Union afterwards. The oral histories presented are divided into three time periods. The first deals with 1900-1921, the end of the Old Order. Some of the experiences told recount the events surrounding the Revolution, while others deal with escape, flight and exile. The second part of the book focuses on refugees between 1922 and 1947. Among the communities mentioned is Harbin, a city in Manchuria which had become Russian when the Tsarist Government built the Trans-Siberian railway in the 1890s. Attention is also given to the movement to go back and of the situation of the émigrés during the Second World War. The third part of the book concerns the Soviet Experience and Beyond, 1946-1986. Stories in this section tell of life under Stalin, hunger, escape and defection, and of the struggle of artists and intellectuals within the Soviet Union during this period
Faithful Ruslan : the story of a guard dog by Georgiĭ Vladimov( Book )
9 editions published between 1975 and 2011 in English and held by 563 libraries worldwide
"Unavailable for over twenty years, this gripping novel--first circulated anonymously in samizdat and now widely hailed as one of the most important works of the Soviet dissident era--tells the story of the guard dogs left behind at an abandoned prison camp in the Siberian gulag, its prisoners now freed. Astonishingly, it is told entirely from the perspective of one of the dogs."--Page 4 of cover

A country doctor's notebook by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
5 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 167 libraries worldwide
Part autobiography, part fiction, this early work by the author of The Master and Margarita shows a master at the dawn of his craft, and a nation divided by centuries of unequal progress. In 1916 a 25-year-old, newly qualified doctor named Mikhail Bulgakov was posted to the remote Russian countryside. He brought to his position a diploma and a complete lack of field experience. And the challenges he faced didn't end there: he was assigned to cover a vast and sprawling territory that was as yet unvisited by modern conveniences such as the motor car, the telephone, and electric lights. The stories in A Country Doctor's Notebook are based on this two-year window in the life of the great modernist. Bulgakov candidly speaks of his own feelings of inadequacy, and warmly and wittily conjures episodes such as peasants applying medicine to their outer clothing rather than their skin, and finding himself charged with delivering a baby'having only read about the procedure in text books. Not yet marked by the dark fantasy of his later writing, this early work features a realistic and wonderfully engaging narrative voice'the voice, indeed, of twentieth century Russia's greatest writer.

The white guard by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
14 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 140 libraries worldwide
"White Guard, Mikhail Bulgakov's semi-autobiographical first novel, is the story of the Turbin family in Kiev in 1918. Alexei, Elena, and Nikolka Turbin have just lost their mother - their father had died years before - and find themselves plunged into the chaotic civil war that erupted in the Ukraine in the wake of the Russian Revolution. In the context of this family's personal loss and the social turmoil surrounding them, Bulgakov creates a brilliant picture of the existential crises brought about by the revolution and the loss of social, moral, and political certainties. He confronts the reader with the bewildering cruelty that ripped Russian life apart at the beginning of the last century as well as with the extraordinary ways in which the Turbins preserved their humanity. In this volume Marian Schwartz, a leading translator, offers the first complete and accurate translation of the definitive original text of Bulgakov's novel. She includes the famous dream sequence, omitted in previous translations, and beautifully solves the stylistic issues raised by Bulgakov's ornamental prose. Readers with an interest in Russian literature, culture, or history will welcome this superb translation of Bulgakov's important early work. This edition also contains an informative historical essay by Evgeny Dobrenko."--Book description,
Sergei Eisenstein, selected works by Sergei Eisenstein( Book )
16 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 111 libraries worldwide
I.B.Tauris is delighted to announce the reissue in paperback in three volumes of the definitive, most comprehensive edition, in the finest translations and fully annotated, of the writings of this great filmmaker, theorist and teacher of film - and one of the most original aesthetic thinkers of the twentieth century. The name of Sergei Eisenstein (1898-1948) is synonymous with the idea of montage, as exemplified in his silent classics such as The Battleship Potemkin (1925) and October (1927). In the 1930s his style changed, partly to accommodate the arrival of sound, and his ideas on audio-visual counterpoint developed. Between 1937 and 1940 he elaborated his ideas on montage in a series of essays, most of which remained unpublished until after his death and which are published in English for the first time in this volume. They present the essence of Eisenstein's thinking on cinema and aesthetics more generally and reveal him as one of the most significant philosophers of art of the twentieth century
