This book approaches a particularly interesting time in Russian history in a new-to-me way: by compiling poetry and prose (fiction and non-fiction) from the first two years of the Revolution. It's a well compiled selection that covers a very broad range of reactions, and humanises the events of the time in a way that purely historical accounts can't. Also gave me a lot of authors to add to my wishlist....
