Published works include Mariengof’s 1929 novel, ‘Cynics’ and his ‘A Novel without Lies’, about his friendship with Esenin. Recent publications of contemporary writing include ‘Nine of Russia’s Foremost Women Writers’ and the Russian Booker Prize Winner, Andrei Segeev’s memoir, ‘Stamp Album’, both reviewed in the latest issue of the ‘Journal of the Great-Britain-Russia Society’; and the latest book, Nina Lugovskaya’s fascinating ‘Diary of a Soviet Schoolgirl, 1932-1937.
