- Frogs in Turgenev and, especially, Bulgakov, from Russian Dinosaur.
- Russian History Blog has a new “blog conversation” up, with reactions by Gulag experts to a new book, Death and Redemption: The Gulag and the Shaping of Soviet Society by Steven A. Barnes. There’s also an interview with Barnes in the New Books in Russian and Eurasian Studies podcast.
- Sarah J. Young on Gulag literature looking back to Dostoevskii. Among other things, I was surprised to learn there’s an English translation of literary critic D. S. Likhachev’s memoirs.
