Focuses on a handful of the most prominent authors and offers a generous selection of the work of each. The introductions to individual authors are very readable and often illuminating. Also contains a short, amusing section of Russian folk proverbs including "The joy of Russia is to drink" and "The crane says, 'Good-bye Mother Russia, I'll go where it's warm.'" Well, I think it's funny.
