Aleksandr Pushkin undoubtedly heads the list of the Russian writers, and is credited with making Russian literature world famous. His reputation rests on his poetry, and in the field of the long novels. 
While Leo Tolstoy was called the ‘greatest writer of Russia’ by Turgenev, and ‘second Shakespeare’ by Flaubert, Mikhail Saltykov, wrote under the pseudonym ‘Shchedrin’ and achieved the great success and popularity. 
Aleksandr Kuprin was called the Russian Kipling by Vladimir Nabokov for his stories about pathetic adventure-seekers, and Ivan Turgenev’s A Sportsman's Sketches was a milestone of Russian Realism.
While Fyodor Sologub gave us the namesake of a favourite snack today—Hide and Seek, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov’s famous line is still quote-worthy: “Medicine is my lawful wife and literature is my mistress.”
All these writers and many more in this classic anthology of the 20-BEST Stories from Russia.
