Together with the largest book service in Russia and the CIS countries LitRes have prepared a selection of cool modern novels that will captivate more than one evening. Here is the original Omentum, and the shocking Hosseini, and the fabulous Patchett. We are sure that the plots and meanings that you will find in these works will occupy an important place in world literature, and perhaps have already taken place.

“Laurel” Eugene Vodolazkin

Medieval Russia. Arseniy’s beloved herbalist dies during childbirth. The protagonist blames himself for her death. To pray for his soul, he becomes a traveling physician, goes to Jerusalem, and then receives a vow. The book won the Yasnaya Polyana and Bolshaya Kniga awards and has been translated into more than thirty languages. And according to The Guardian, this profound life novel is among the top 10 best books in world literature about God.

“Reef” Alexei Polyarinov

Kira from a small polar city, anthropologist Lee from the United States and Tanya from Moscow. Their destinies, it would seem, are not connected in any way, but this is only at first glance. In the usual course of life, something happens to girls that changes their attitude towards themselves and the world around them. Each encounters a reef, and now has to reconsider the landmarks. Who will find the strength to fight for salvation, and who will come to terms with the impending end? A grim and fascinating study of modern sects and the difficulties of living in closed societies.

“Amendments” by Jonathan Franzen

A novel that brought its creator world fame, as well as the US National Book Award and the James Tate Black Award. A family saga about two generations of an ordinary family from the Midwest. The author ironically tells the story of Lambert: unresolved problems, unspoken feelings, hidden grievances, scandals, reconciliations, hatred and love. Franzen skillfully reveals the characters and captivates with the story line, surprising the reader with a denouement. A book about how often anxiety and longing hide behind external well-being.

“Running for the wind” Khaled Hosseini

A poignant, stunning story of friendship and devotion. Pre-war Kabul. Amir was born into a wealthy Afghan family, and Hassan is the son of a servant. Despite this, the boys are close friends. But suddenly everything changes: Amir sees Hasan being humiliated and does not intercede for him, and then stops communicating with a friend altogether. Soon a war broke out in the country, Hassan remained in his homeland, and Amir and his father emigrated to the United States, feeling remorse for his betrayal. And one day he is given a chance to atone for his guilt… The book was also screened.

“Dutch House” Anne Patchett

Cyril Conroy wanted to provide for his family, so he bought a luxury mansion in Philadelphia. His children, Danny and Maeve, had no soul in the huge house, and his wife could not accept his majestic beauty. She left the family. Cyril’s new wife, on the other hand, fell in love with the house and, after her husband’s death, evicted his children, not considering it necessary to share the inheritance. Left without parents and without money, brother and sister are forced to survive. An ominous story that critics compare to the work of the Brothers Grimm.

“Petrov in the flu and around it” Alexei Salnikov

Ural. New Year’s week. Cold air. Tired, dissatisfied people. Petrov Sr., who works as a car mechanic, gets the flu. He infects his wife, librarian and their youngest son. Temperature reality mixes with painful dreams and memories. The author hypnotizes the reader with unusual stylistics and details, and then sobers up the finale, in which the characters and the story receive a different interpretation and gain new meanings. The book was screened and awarded the National Bestseller Award.

“Generation” P “Victor Pelevin

A graduate of the Literary Institute Vavilen Tatarsky accidentally gets a job in the advertising industry. At first, the young man is surprised at how much the public is influenced, but when he discovers a talent for writing advertising slogans, he gets real pleasure from his power over minds. And soon the hero begins to engage in political technology, and his life changes completely. A cult novel with the atmosphere of the “dashing nineties”. The book was screened.

And on special promo code URAKNOGA on site service, all readers will receive a book as a gift from a special selection, as well as a 15% discount on almost the entire range.
