Russia

Russia, Churchill's 'riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma' is a country with a remarkable history and a rich literary heritage. It's also the Market Focus of this year's London International Book Fair, so we've put together some of the very best books by and about Russians and their homeland. Wonder at the defiant poetry of Anna Akhmatova, take a frozen journey beyond the Urals with Dervla Murphy or explore a sinister possible future with Dymitry Bykov's Living Souls.
