Hey /lit/, can you recommend me some books that take place in a communist/socialist society? It doesn't matter if it's portrayed positively or negatively. I'm aware of Bulgakov and plan to read him. Thanks!
oh yea the books that are popular/recommended/known these days will all tend towards the critical perspective. if you want some soviet realism that approaches it from a positive angle try some stuff like:
ostrovsky - how the steel was tempered
gorky - mother
