In 1990, after the fall of Soviet communism, Andrei Sinyavsky went home to Russia. In exile for nearly two decades, the writer known as Abram Tertz had suffered prison and oppression for liberating both the writer and reader from the constraints of totalitarianism. The Russian Intelligentsia is the record of an exile's return - both a riveting chronicle of poverty, crime, and corruption and a passionate call for Russian intellectuals to rearm in a new struggle for freedom and democracy. Sinyavsky creates a vivid picture of today's Russian intelligentsia and its role as conscience and critic since the fall of communism in 1989, as well as a chilling portrait of economic and political stagnation under Yeltsin. He revisits the historically troubled relationship of the Russian intelligentsia and the "masses" for whom it has traditionally spoken. Drawing striking parallels to the role of intellectuals under the czar, he finds that contemporary writers and artists have lost touch with popular interests. Having abandoned Gorbachev, the hero of perestroika, the Russian intelligentsia turned to Yeltsin and supported his crushing of the October 1993 coup out of fear of "communist" or "fascist" threats from below. The collapse of the well-ordered Soviet cosmos has created new classes of privileged apparatchiks including former exiles and dissidents and new forms of suffering for the poor. The Russian Intelligentsia, a brilliant and passionate polemic that ranks with the fiercest Sinyavsky has written, reasserts the power of free thought and critical understanding in a society grappling with democratic reform
My sister--life and A sublime malady by Boris Leonidovich Pasternak( Book )

13 editions published in 1965 in Russian and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Boris Pasternak is best known in the West for his epic novel Doctor Zhivago, whereas in Russia he is most celebrated as a poet. The two poetry collections offered here in translation are chronological and thematic bookends, and they capture Pasternak's abiding and powerful vision of life: his sense of its beauty and terror, its precariousness for the individual, and its persistence in time - that vitality of being with which he is on familiar and familial terms."--Project Muse

A voice from the chorus by Abram Tert︠s︡( Book )

41 editions published between 1973 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Andrei Sinyavsky, who writes under the pseudonym of Abram Tertz, has been called by Saul Bellow "one of the most intelligent, most original, and most brilliant of contemporary writers". A noted Russian dissident, he was incarcerated from 1966 to 1971 in Soviet forced labor camps for allowing some of his most satirical writings to be smuggled out of Russia and published in the West. This extraordinary literary work is Sinyavsky's prison memoir. Based on letters to his wife, the diary includes Sinyavsky's meditations on religion, sex, art, literature, and myths - the inner world to which he removed himself to escape from the degradation of prison. Interjected into these thoughts, however, are random snatches of prisoners' conversations - a "chorus" of their tales, legends, songs, and curses that evoke the horror and spiritual desolation of their existence. The result is at once an oblique evocation of prison life, a celebration of literature and art, and a tribute to the endurance of the human spirit. Originally published in 1976, A Voice from the Chorus is now available with a new preface from the author
