Maria Rubins, Russian Montparnasse

The revised Russian translation of Dr Maria Rubins’ book Russian Montparnasse was published in Moscow by the Novoe literaturnoe obozrenie publishing house: РУССКИЙ МОНПАРНАС: Парижская проза 1920-30-х годов в контексте транснационального модернизма (Moscow: NLO, 2017).

Russian Montparnasse - Transnational Writing in Interwar Paris reassesses the role of Russian Montparnasse writers in the articulation of transnational modernism generated by exile. Examining their production from a comparative perspective, it demonstrates that their response to urban modernity transcended the Russian master narrative and resonated with broader aesthetic trends in interwar Europe.
