Format:  Russia's Open Book: Writing In The Age Of Putin DVD 
 
 
Did Russian literature suddenly become less important after the 1991 dissolution of the Soviet Union? This program takes an overview of the writing emerging from 21st-century Russia, focusing in particular on six contemporary authors who may be poised to go down in history as the "next" Dostoevsky, Gogol, or Tolstoy--and interviews each to discuss their craft while critics, publishers, and colleagues offer their own insights. Hosted by Stephen Fry. 60 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English (SDH).
