Russian Culture

It would be great if more of you chose to read one of the great Russian classic novels instead of opting for a movie or doing something not-so-demanding on the web. Some of the Russian literary works of the nineteenth- and early twentieth century can be counted among the world's greatest, and you should read them sometime.

I couldn't agree more. Let me share a few titles which have just recently made it beyond Russia's borders (though written during the 1920s) Jack Vosmerkin - The American and The Land of the Sun, easy reading historical novels by very talented writer, N. G. Smirnov. More info and book samples can be found at www.geocities.com/maxmakc
