Bookslinger Update: “Universum”

The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!

9785717200950This week’s story by Irina Bogatyreva comes from Still Waters Run Deep, published by GLAS New Russian Writing. These frank, unsparing, and varied stories by women in their twenties and thirties reveal the evolution of women’s consciousness in Russia through two decades of violent social upheaval—including the dramatic monologue of a teenage girl who grew up in an orphanage; an escape to the Altai Mountains and the mysterious local rites and lore; the seamy side of Siberian business and a young man’s failure to get to grips with it; the tricky backstage life of a provincial theater; the private life of a wealthy family which mirrors the social stratification in Russian society today.
