This week we'll discuss two short stories by contemporary Russian author Lyudmila Petrushevskaya. Until the Protected content she mostly wrote and put on plays - often censored -, but at the start of perestroika, she also published novels and short stories that couldn't be published before. She is regarded as one of the best living Russian writers.

The stories that we'll discuss are "The Story of A Painter" Protected content and "Poor Girl" Protected content Please keep in mind that The New Yorker allows users to read a limited number of articles, so it's best to access the links when you also have time to read the short stories.

It doesn't matter if you didn't have time to read both of the short stories or that you'll be late. You can just come to discuss how the book club should work and how you can participate.
