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

A country doctor's notebook by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
4 editions published between 1976 and 2013 in English and held by 176 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 crumbling fortress by Willi Heinrich( Book )

Mary : a novel by Vladimir Vladimirovich Nabokov( Book )
18 editions published between 1970 and 2012 in English and held by 91 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
Sergei Eisenstein, selected works by Sergei Eisenstein( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 71 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
Another life ; and, The House on the embankment by I︠U︡riĭ Trifonov( Book )
1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 67 libraries worldwide
Faithful Ruslan by Georgiĭ Vladimov( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 53 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."--P. [4] of cover
Black snow : a theatrical novel by Mikhail Bulgakov( Book )
4 editions published between 1967 and 2013 in English and held by 40 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
