Popular modernEvery foreigner knows Dostoevsky and Tolstoy. What about modern authors? ReadRate found out what relevant writers foreigners are reading right now. You know, we definitely have someone to be proud of! Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Gogol, Pasternak, Solzhenitsyn and Brodsky. The legacy of Russian literature that is popular abroad is still being read, but time is running out … Who do foreigners read with the same rapture as we, in turn, Julian Barnes, Chuck Palahniuk, Michel Welbeck, David Nichols and others? Despite the talk that the missions of domestic authors at international fairs often fail, there is no reason for sadness. We have authors beloved abroad. ReadRate has prepared a list of the seven most widely read authors abroad. It was compiled using data from Amazon.com (the number of books in foreign languages, popularity level, number of reader reviews) and data on downloadability / readability of books from PocketBook readers. They are also actively translated into foreign languages ​​and then read by Dmitry Bykov (mainly Pasternak’s biography), Zakhar Prilepin (though recently the love of foreigners for him has declined due to the writer’s political position), Lyudmila Petrushevskaya, Marina Stepnova, Olga Slavnikova, Alexander Marinin. Strange, but with all the affiliation with the “great Russian literature” abroad, the writer Alexei Ivanov is not translated at all.
