Victor Pelevin studied at Moscow’s Gorky Institute of Literature, and is one of the few novelists today who writes seriously about what is happening in contemporary Russia. His work has been translated into fifteen languages and his novels Omon Ra, The Life of Insects, The Clay Machine-Gun and Babylon, as well as two collections of short stories, have been published in English to great acclaim.

The Tambourine of the Upper World

Chtenia: Fall 2015
With his early stories and novels, Pelevin established himself as one of Russia’s leading contemporary writers. “The Tambourine of the Upper World” showcases many of his usual themes and interests: social satire, mysticism, metaphysical border crossings, and upturned expectations.
