The blizzard : a novel by Vladimir Sorokin( Book )

46 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in 12 languages and held by 779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A dazzling, utterly distinctive saga from Russia's most celebrated-and most controversial-novelist. Vladimir Sorokin is one of Russia's most popular and provocative novelists. In his scabrous dystopian satire Day of the Oprichnik, American readers were introduced to his distinctive style, which combines an edgy avant-garde sensibility with a fondness for the absurd and even the grotesque-all in service of bringing out stinging truths about life in modern-day Russia. In The Blizzard, we are immersed in the atmosphere of a nineteenth-century Russia. Garin, a district doctor, is desperately trying to reach the village of Dolgoye, where a mysterious epidemic is turning people into zombies. He carries with him a vaccine that will prevent the spread of this terrible disease but is stymied in his travels by an all-consuming snowstorm, an impenetrable blizzard that turns a drive that should last only a few hours into a voyage of days and, finally, a journey into eternity. The Blizzard dramatizes a timeless metaphysical predicament. The characters in this nearly postapocalyptic world are constantly in motion and yet somehow trapped and frozen-spending day and night fighting their way through the storm on an expedition filled with extraordinary encounters, dangerous escapades, torturous imaginings, and amorous adventures. Hypnotic, fascinating, and richly descriptive, The Blizzard is a seminal work from one of the most inventive writers working today"--
The queue by Vladimir Sorokin( Book )

58 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vladimir Sorokin’s first published novel, The Queue, is a sly comedy about the late Soviet “years of stagnation.” Thousands of citizens are in line for . . . nobody knows quite what, but the rumors are flying. Leather or suede? Jackets, jeans? Turkish, Swedish, maybe even American? It doesn’t matter–if anything is on sale, you better line up to buy it. Sorokin’s tour de force of ventriloquism and formal daring tells the whole story in snatches of unattributed dialogue, adding up to nothing less than the real voice of the people, overheard on the street as they joke and curse, fall in and out of love, slurp down ice cream or vodka, fill out crossword puzzles, even go to sleep and line up again in the morning as the queue drags on."

Ice by Vladimir Sorokin( Book )

A cult of blond-haired, blue-eyed murderers are going around Moscow kidnapping people, tying them up, and then beating them on the chest with hammers made out of ice (kept in portable refrigerators) from a Siberian meteorite. The purpose of this injurious behavior is to awaken the celestial beings who are residing within them; however, only a tiny percentage of the victims survive this painful "rebirth." The survivors are given new names, a healthy bank account, and are sent out to "awaken" more of their kind

Norma by Vladimir Sorokin( Book )

32 editions published between 1994 and 2014 in Russian and German and held by 228 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Norm is one of the most exciting and multifaceted works by Vladimir Sorokin, a master of alternative prose. This novel exquisitely intertwines postmodernism with realism, the recent past with Kafka-esque surrealist motifs, and a fascinating, mystery-like plot with deep profundity. The Norm is at once social satire and anti-utopian, and thoroughly intellectually stimulating

Tellurii︠a︡ : roman by Vladimir Sorokin( Book )

20 editions published between 2013 and 2017 in 7 languages and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine literarische Tour de Force durch eine von Gewalt, Ungewissheit und neuen Heilsversprechungen erfüllte Gegenwart, die der unseren erschreckend gleicht - auch wenn fast alles ganz anders ist: Eurasien ist nach Religionskriegen, Revolutionen und Aufständen in isolierte Kleinstaaten zerfallen. Moskau steigt auf Kartoffelgas um, es herrscht ein aufgeklärt theokratisch-kommunofeudalistisches Regime, das Umland befindet sich in chinesischer Hand. In Köln wird nach drei Jahren Talibanherrschaft wieder Karneval gefeiert. Der Zwergstaat SSSR, Stalinische Sozialistische Sowjetrepublik, eine Oligarchen-Gründung, ist zum Paradies für Linksradikale jeglicher Couleur geworden. Das Sehnsuchtsland aber ist die Bergrepublik Telluria. Hier wird die Droge Tellur, andernorts als schweres Suchtmittel geächtet, zur Heilung eingesetzt. Um diesen Glücksstoff, der zu Nägeln gemacht und in die Köpfe gehämmert wird, dreht sich das Tun und Trachten aller Figuren des Romans, in denen wir uns selbst und die Akteure unserer Geschichte wiedererkennen. In 50 Kapiteln entfaltet Sorokin ein Panorama der Genres, von Märchenton und orientalischer Poesie bis zu Live-Reportage und bitterböser zeitdiagnostischer Satire
