Discover the epic masterpieces of Russian literature.

Published to mark the centenary of the Russian Revolution, these are the must-have Russian titles that have survived controversy, censorship and suppression to influence decades of thought and artistic expression.

In 2017 Vintage invited animation students from London’s Kingston University to create one-minute videos celebrating these books in the Vintage Russians series. Take a look at Maria Morris’s third prize-winning treatment of Mikhail Bulgakov’s The Master and Margarita.
