    My favorite is Anna Karenina! Love that book, it makes my top all time list, not just Russians. And yet I’ve never been able to make it through War and Peace. Of the books by Turgenev, I also enjoyed Home of the Gentry and Fathers and Sons.

    I’m woefully under-read when it comes to the Russians, but I really enjoyed Teffi’s Subtly Worded when I read it earlier this year.

    Too hard to choose, so I’ll share some unusual ones that people may not know: Resurrection by Tolstoy is a really interesting one, and anything by Gogol is weird but thought-provoking satire. Amongst contemporary authors, my favourites are The Concert Ticket and The New Moscow Philosophy. The one I wish everyone would read is Grossman’s Life and Fate because there is still after all these years too much ignorance about the role the USSR played in WW2. Grossman was a journalist and this novel about the turning point of the war in the battle for Stalingrad is just brilliant.

    So many great Russian novels, it’s difficult to choose only one. But Oblomov was always a very special book to me and I hope to re-read again soon.

    I am also reading Russian authors this winter.

    My all time favorite is ` Dr. Zhivago` by Pasternak…I read it every few years and always find something new in it.

    Currently reading ` Evening ` by Anna Akhmatova…her first poetry collection.., circa 1912.
