Sergei Lebedev's novel "Oblivion" has been named one of the Top 10 Novels of 2016 by The Wall Street Journal, which says: "Sergei Lebedev’s debut is a phantasmagoric travelogue of the former gulags of the Arctic Circle and an unforgettable descent into Russia’s bloody history. Solzhenitsyn haunts the pages, but the crystalline lyricism is the author’s own. The sparkling rendering into English makes it plain that Antonina W. Bouis is one of the best translators at work today."

Statement by Svetlana Aleksievich

October 8, 2015

"I’m very happy. And overwhelmed by a storm of complex feelings. Joy, of course. But alarm as well. The great shadows of Ivan Bunin, Boris Pasternak, and Alexander Solzhenitsyn have come alive. The greater part of my path has been traveled, but much work remains ahead of me, and many new turns. Now I cannot let myself slide."

Svetlana Alexievich has been named the recipient of the 2013 Peace Prize by the German Publishers and Booksellers Association.
The prize will be awarded in October at the Frankfurt Book Fair. The board praised the author, saying she "has consistently and effectively traced the lives and experiences of her fellow citizens in Belarus, Russia and the Ukraine by articulating their passions and sorrows in a humble and generous manner. Her tragic chronicles of the individual human fates involved in the Chernobyl disaster, the Soviet war in Afghanistan and the unfulfilled longing for peace after the crumbling of the Soviet Empire give tangible expression to a fundamental undercurrent of existential disappointment that is difficult to disregard." Alexievich had "created her own aesthetic literary genre, often referred to as the 'novel of voices'."
