Hello,

please suggest any books by modern Russian writers.


I am sure Russia is not just about Dostoevsky or Tostoi.


What good writers are there now????????


THANK YOU!

Alexander Men'. (OK, he died in 1990)

My wife likes Viktoria Tokareva and Dina Rubina...

Though it is more POP literature than classic, I like Sergey Minayev (the novel "Dukhless" is liked by me, but sure it is not for re reading agian and again:) )

what about Bulgakov? granted he's not contemporary, from the Stalinist era, but I have found a lot of Russians say he's their favorite writer. Reading his work gives a good insight on Soviet Russia. Master & Margarita is an excellent novel, lots of fun, brilliant, hilarious, extremely imaginative, and devilishly unconventional. I highly recommend it.

Victor Pelevin. A wonderful mix of satire, Buddhist philosophy and imaginative, sometimes surreal narrative. Very up-to-date, too; sometimes it's almost like the reality takes time to catch up with his commentary.
