Max Lawton Translates Vladimir Sorokin’s “Red Pyramid”
February 16, 2024

Max Lawton (Ph.D. Candidate, Slavic Languages) continues “the Sorokin renaissance” (Publishers Weekly) with the volume Red Pyramid, a collection of short fiction, to be published later this month by NYRB Classics.

The Sorokin renaissance continues after Telluria with a vital selection of the Russian enfant terrible’s best shorts. As astute as they are provocative, these stories are an ideal introduction to the prolific and fearless Sorokin.
