This title is presented with a new introduction by Andrey Kurkov. 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

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

Mary : a novel by Vladimir Nabokov( Book )
18 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in English and held by 88 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

"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

Black snow : a theatrical novel by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
5 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in English and held by 47 libraries worldwide
Written by Soviet playwright Bulgakov, this novel tells the story of the fictitious Maxudov. When Maxudov's novel is unsuccessful, he turns it into a play, which is accepted by Moscow's "Independent Theatre." But the inflated egos behind the scenes make it unlikely that the play will ever be performed
White guard by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
9 editions published between 1971 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 38 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, Amazon.com
