The Russian Forest (1953) was acclaimed by the authorities as a model Soviet book on World War II and received the Lenin Prize, but its implication that the Soviet regime had cut down "the symbol of Old Russian culture" caused some nervousness, and Nikita Khrushchev reminded the author that "not all trees are useful ... from time to time the forest must be thinned."

Donbas : a novel by Boris Leontʹevich Gorbatov( Book )

2 editions published in 1953 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Román o tom, jak v 30. letech vznikalo na Donbasu a v celé ukrajinské uhelné pánvi soutěžení a stachanovské hnutí. Spojovacím motivem je pracovní, politický a morální růst dvou komsomolců, od jejich příchodu na důl, přes jejich nováčkovskou bezradnost, přátelský boj s konservativností starých hornických mistrů, odmítajících mechanisaci, až k překonání Stachanovova rekordu. Celý román vyznívá v myšlenku, že pracovní rekordy nelze považovat za náhodu, ale je třeba usilovat o ně jako o samozřejmý pracovní průměr - výsledek součinnosti dělby práce, zavádění nejpokrokovějších metod, odstraňování rovnostářství a byrokratismu a nejužší vzájemné soudružské pomoci

A nest of the gentry; a novel by Ivan Sergeevich Turgenev( Book )

5 editions published in 1947 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Coming back to the "nest" of his family home in Russia after years of fruitless endeavours away from his roots, Lavretsky decides to turn his back on the vacuous salons of Paris and his frivolous and unfaithful wife Varvara Pavlovna. On his return he meets Liza, the daughter of one of his cousins, whom he had known when they were children and who rekindles in him long-smothered feelings of love. News of Varvara's death arrive from France, offering Lavretsky the prospect of a new life, but a cruel twist threatens to shatter his dreams and forces him to re-evaluate his plans. Hailed as a masterpiece of Russian literature, A Nest of the Gentry, Turgenev's most successful and widely read novel - here presented in a new translation by Michael Pursglove - deals with the personal struggles of the individual in a period of turbulent social change."--Publisher's description
Two captains by V Kaverin( Book )

2 editions published between 1972 and 1989 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Not an easy book to analyze but it has a curious fascination --this story of Sanya Grigorav, his early days in Moscow of the Revolution, his family life, his schooling at the Children's Shelter. The years at the university in Leningrad reflect the changing viewpoint of the Russian intellectual in the late '20's. The thread holding the reminiscences together is the Saint Maria, lost in a polar expedition, and eventually solved Sanya's training as Flight Pilot rounds out the book."--Kirkus

She turns out to be the beautiful Vasilisa the Wise, but she vanishes when Ivan burns her frog-skin. Ivan solicits the help of the witch Baba-Yaga to find Vasilisa and rescue her from the evil sorcerer Koshchey the Deathless
Reminiscences of Lenin by Nadezhda Konstantinovna Krupskaya( Book )

4 editions published between 1959 and 2018 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nadezhda Konstantinovna Krupskaya was a founding member of the Russian Bolshevik Party and the wife of Vladimir Lenin from 1898 until his death in 1924. As both his closest political collaborator and personal confidant, Krupskaya offers invaluable insights into the life and thought of the most important leader of the Russian Revolution. The portrait of Lenin that emerges is of a man unwavering in his convictions, but also - contrary to the mythology later woven around him - quick to laugh and tender in his affections. --
