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).
