Russian lit blog

Just came across a very neat blog, Lisa Hayden writes about contemporary Russian lit available in translation. Here's her 2009 selection round-up of titles:

Rasskazy on Amazon
Life Stories on Amazon
Boris Akunin on Amazon
Do Time Get Time on Amazon
An Awkward Age on Amazon
There Once Lived a Woman... on Amazon
Night Roads on Amazon
The Dacha Husband on Amazon
Memories of the Future on Amazon
A Jewish God in Paris on Amazon
The Stranger (The Labyrinths of Echo) on Amazon
The Golden Calf on Amazon
The Little Golden Calf on Amazon

Rasskazy sounds like a very interesting anthology, Akunin is contemporary classic, "The Stranger" by Max Frei is important, and of course The Golden Calf -- well, the fact that there were two translations of it this year alone means a lot!
