Chtenia: Readings from Russia Hard to pronounce... even harder to put down
When was the last time a really good story grabbed you? When time stood still and words on a page evoked tangible emotions, people and places? When you were surprised by a plot, enthralled by characters, gifted with a deeper understanding of your world?
Chtenia (“readings” in Russian), is full of stories like that. Stories that move you, impress you, and help you better understand the mystery that is Russia.
Chtenia is the only regularly published journal CHTENIA 128 pages, quarterly $35 (U.S.), $43 (rest of the world)
of Russian fiction in English, presenting new or long-forgotten works of classic authors like Pushkin, Gogol and Tolstoy alongside works by contemporary authors like Sorokin, Gelasimov and Slavnikova.
But fiction is only the beginning. Each issue of Chtenia has wonderful photography, mem- oirs, essays on popular culture, song lyrics, poetry, humor, all centered around a chosen theme. The result is a vivid snapshot of one aspect of Russian culture, an introduction that is sure to give you insights into new areas of Russian life. Each issue of Chtenia is full of literary gems waiting to be discovered by western readers!
“a superb publication” – New Pages
Still, we don’t want Chtenia to overwhelm you. Our focus is on quality, not quantity. So each issue of Chtenia is just 128 pages and bound in a slim, attractive, portable paperback volume that’s easy (and extremely impressive) to tote along to the coffee shop or beach.
Chtenia’s stories are translated into fluent, engaging English by some of the best Russian- to-English literary translators working today, making each issue a beautiful collector’s edition. And yet, a one-year subscription (four issues) costs about what you’d expect to pay for a single work of new hardcover fiction.
If you love to read, if you are fascinated by all things Russian, or if you simply love to explore new ideas and new places, Chtenia is for you.
