Behind smart and good books at the intellectual fair Automatic translate
MOSCOW. The 17th Non fiction Intellectual Literature Fair opened.
In the capital alone, at least ten book fairs and festivals are held annually. Each of them has its own face, the approach to the formation of sections and the program of events. The main criterion for the selection of authors for Non fiction is the high level of the proposed literature, the absence of a low-grade mass product. The fair presents the most interesting and high-quality news related to the section of fiction, educational, children’s, humanitarian literature, antique publications and books on art. From the huge mass of first-class printed materials presented at the stands of 250 publishing houses, a number of publications can be distinguished that can cause the greatest interest of readers.
The collected works of Lydia Chukovskaya, prepared for publication by her daughter Elena, who left at the beginning of the year, will interest not only fans of memoirs. The taboo on the mention of her name in any publications for decades did not allow a wide circle of readers to get acquainted with the work of a talented writer from the Chukovsky dynasty. The reason for this was her non-conformist position towards the Soviet regime, the persecution as a family member of the enemy of the people (her husband was repressed and shot), speaking in defense of Brodsky, Daniel, Sinyavsky and Solzhenitsyn, followed by the expulsion from the Writers’ Union.
The new book of the famous linguist Maxim Krongauz, experimental and destroying stereotypes prevailing in modern linguistics, has every chance to be among the leaders in sales. As well as previous works on the transformations, adventures and problems of the Russian language.
The fantastic story of the withering and destruction of European civilization, chosen by Michel Welbeck for "Submission", turns out to be painfully similar to the truth in the light of recent events in Paris. Welbeck dispassionately dissects a situation in which, with apparent stability and deja vu-dimensionality, an end comes.
Ulitskaya’s family saga “Jacob’s Ladder”, “The Siege Diary” by Olga Berggoltz, “Moscow” from the works of Dmitry Prigov, the books of Alexander Arkhangelsky, Tatyana Tolstoy and her namesake Sophia (culinary recipes of Lev Nikolaevich’s wife) deserve unconditional attention. And even an unusual edition of “Four Stories of Leo Rubinstein” made of wood and leather.
