Glas. New Russian Writing. Volume 21. The Face-Maker and the Muse
  • On Sale!
Books in English
In this issue: Leonid Latynin "The Face-Maker and the Muse". This 1978 Russian novel is about an artist who lives in "the city," a dystopian hell whose citizens are identified only by numbers - unless they happen to look like an idealized face called "the image" - created by the eponymous Face-Maker - in which case they receive a name and certain privileges. Plastic surgery, of course, plays its part in this society, as do such bizarre customs as strangling birds, as well as various bizarre sexual practices. Latynin's Orwellian fable is a powerful indictment not only of oppressive societies but of the contemporary obsession with appearance.

Glas. New Russian Writing. Volume 22. The Nomadic Soul
  • On Sale!
World Languages
In this issue: Irina Muravyova The Nomadic Soul. A Story of Modern Anna Karenina, Lala, Natasha, Toma, Philemon and Baucis. The Nomadic Soul traces the dramatic history of several generations of an upper-class family during the First World War and the Civil War in Russia. Historical events, providing a background for the narrative, are depicted not directly but rather as seismic shock waves overturning and transforming the lives of ordinary people. Lala, Natasha, Toma - three heroines are close friends, all from formerly affluent families stripped of their wealth and status by the Revolution and now struggling for their very survival in Soviet Russia. Philemon and Baucis - a married couple who live to a ripe old age in idyllic love and harmony during the perestroika years. Through flashbacks to their earlier life it becomes apparent that the husband has been the commandant of a women's labor camp in the 1930's and enjoyed the confidence of Stalin himself.
