Could you recommend me some interesting soviet writers?
Oh but there are so many! Some of my favourites are Ilya Ilf & Yevgeniy Petrov (satire from 1920s—1930s), Strugatsky brothers (sci fi), Ilya Shtemler (working class dramas), Kir Bulychyov (sci fi), Mikhail Bulgakov (duh), Alexey Tolstoy (historical fiction, sci fi), Vladimir Nabokov (duh)… There are so many really, I’ve barely scraped the surface even though I love to read.
Hi! Just wanted to tip my hat to you for a great blog that not only cheers me everyday but is also a good source of academic help. I'm currently doing research for my honors thesis on the politicization of visual culture in the Soviet Republics, and your blog is an amazing source for me--of both material and inspiration. I'm so happy to see others with such a great interest in this!
Thank you for your kind words. I’m not much into political designs, but you can’t really stay away from it if you run a Soviétique blog. :) Keep up the good work!
