Fifty-five years with Russia
Ljunggren, Magnus, author
Boston : Academic Studies Press, [2016]
"The academic career of Professor Magnus Ljunggren spans more than a half century. Here he looks back over his meetings with leading members of the Russian intelligentsia who, from the liberalizing Twenty-Second Party Congress, in 1961, to the present, have struggled with the totalitarian structures of Soviet and post-Soviet society. As a scholar, Ljunggren has focused on Andrei Bely's prose, Russian symbolism, and the Russian silver age. He reflects on how his study of symbolism and his commitment to the Russian civil rights movement over the years have stimulated each other and contributed to a deeper understanding of Russia's distinctive character. Ljunggren's gallery of intimate and colorful portraits includes prominent cultural figures such as Bulat Okudzhava, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, Joseph Brodsky, Viktor Shklovsky, Lidia Chukovskaya, and Nina Berberova"--

Fardwor, Russia! : a fantastical tale of life under Putin
Kashin, Oleg, 1980- author
New York : Restless Books, 2015
"When a scientist experimenting on humans in a sanatorium near Moscow gives a growth serum to a dwarf oil mogul, the newly heightened businessman runs off with the experimenter's wife, and a series of mysterious deaths and crimes commences. Fantastical and wonderfully strange, this political parable has an uncanny resonance with today's Russia under Putin."--Amazon.com.

Explodity : sound, image, and word in Russian futurist book art
Perloff, Nancy, author
Los Angeles, California : Getty Research Institute, [2016]
From the provinces: anticipations of Mirskontsa -- Sounding the accidental ("death to symbolism") -- Mirskontsa: collaborative book art and transrational sounds -- Unlocking the semantics of sound in vzorval' -- The afterlife of Russian futurist book art.

"The artists' books made in Russia between 1910 and 1915 are like no others. Unique in their fusion of the verbal, visual, and sonic, these books are meant to be read, looked at, and listened to. Painters and poets--including Natalia Goncharova, Velimir Khlebnikov, Mikhail Larionov, Kazimir Malevich, and Vladimir Mayakovsky--collaborated to fabricate hand-lithographed books, for which they invented a new language called zaum (a neologism meaning "beyond the mind") that was distinctive in its emphasis on "sound as such" and its rejection of definite logical meaning. At the heart of this volume are close analyses of two of the most significant and experimental futurist books: Mirskontsa (Worldbackwards) and Vzorval' (Explodity). In addition, Nancy Perloff examines the profound difference between the Russian avant-garde and Western art movements, including futurism, and she uncovers a wide-ranging legacy in the midcentury global movement of sound and concrete poetry (the Brazilian Noigandres group, Ian Hamilton Finlay, and Henri Chopin), contemporary Western conceptual art, and the artist's book."--ECIP data view.
