Stephen Fry Has An Amazing Beard And Talks About Russian Lit In This New Documentary

He (fittingly) looks JUST like Anton Chekhov.

Posted on

Russia's Open Book: Writing In The Age Of Putin is a PBS documentary where Stephen Fry talks about modern Russian literature.

And there's Mariam Petrosyan, who wrote a can't-put-it-down fantasy bestseller...as a teenager.

And the story behind it getting published is as crazy as J.K. Rowling's with Harry Potter.

And underground experimental writer and artist Vladimir Sorokin (whose books were banned during the Soviet Union) talks about how he twists famous Russian literary works to make them have a modern context.

Russia's Open Book premieres on PBS on Saturday, December 28, at 1pm EST.
