The world’s biggest country, in a magazine. Since 1956.
NATALIA KLYUCHAROVA was born in Perm and published her first novel, A Train Named Russia (2008), online before it was put into print and caused a stir in the Russian intelligentsia for its gritty look at modern Russian reality. The novel went on to win Russia’s prestigious Debut Prize and has already been translated into eight languages. Her second novel, Village of Fools, follows a similar track to her first, exposing in tight, expressive prose the eternal questions that have drawn Russian writers since the nineteenth century.
