The anthology also contains Yevgeny Zamiatin's sci fi/distopia novel We, which I'm finding quite interesting.
I was wondering whether anyone here had any thoughts on this novel and/or had any suggestions for additional works by Zamiatin. (I see the touchstone spells his name Zamyatin, but the book I'm reading has the first spelling.)
The Zamyatin/Zamiatin distinction arises because of different ways of transliterating Russian into English. I think "Zamiatin" is the Library of Congress version.
forgot to mention I just started the Unabridged version of the Gulag Archipelago so probably 2009 for 'We'!
When I first read it, a few years ago, I don't suppose I 'got' it. After I'd read Gastev, and others, it seemed very witty as well as paranoid. I imagine it to be a hyper-literal imagining of the Bolshevik utopia. So mechanised, so regulated, that the world is awkward and naive, and that, ultimately, it cannot produce art (!).
