New from Translit:
Skaz: Masters of Russian Storytelling

Skaz, a unique narrative form with prominent oral, storytelling qualities, has been used by Russian authors to explore countless settings and topics ranging from irreverent to tragic, from quotidian to magical. This dual-language anthology, which includes stories by Babel, Chekhov, Dostoyevsky, Tolstoy, Zoschchenko, and many other skaz masters, incorporates the Russian text side-by-side with the English translation.
